Greensboro--Ready for some relief from the heat? It will arrive Monday, but really be felt Tuesday through the rest of the week.
This dangerous heat wave has been responsible for at least 30 deaths across the U.S. Over 240 cities have set all-time record high temperatures.
We have had our share of the heat here in the Piedmont. For us, the heat wave got underway on June 28th. Since then, we have had 10 days where the temperature has reached 90 degrees or above. On 8 of those days, the high temperatures has been 95 degrees or above. The hottest day was June 28th when the high at PTIA was 102 degrees.
As the high pressure that brought the heat weakens, a cold front will approach the Piedmont of North Carolina. It could bring scattered severe storms to the area Monday afternoon along with heavy rainfall. The front will become stationary over the Piedmont and keep cooler temperatures and good rain chances over the area of much of the week.
Monday's high will be 92 degrees. By Tuesday and the rest of the week, temperatures will cool into the low and mid 80's.
The Triad's normal high temperature for this time of year is 88.
