system and now gets wireless all over his house even at the head of his bed. and know this. if your router is more than a few years old, it could impact your signal. consumer reports recently tested 14 router and came one several to recommend and we have that list on so many people dealing with bad naturals with their wi-fi. this is worth troying. >> but the age of your router could -- i about that. >> right. >> we do want to let everybody know we have a story coming up tonight at 6:00. missing money. this is something we have talked about for years. helping people find missing money. we were contacted by someone who was going to get charged for her missing moy. she had to pay a fee to get her unclaimed cash. unclaimed cash so many people have it and it is money being held by the state. so many people have it, they don't realize it. could be everything from bank

8:44 am
8:45 am
i will say this morning my drive in today was the first
8:46 am
windshield wipers so a little less fog today. >> it looks nice out there. but that means it will be hotter. the fewer clouds we see, the hotter it will be. that is where we're headed all the way through the weekend. we take a look at what is going on out there. our tall tower cam looking pretty. can you see some cumulus clouds trying to pop up there right now. we are not likely to have those producing any thunderstorms. they will only grow to a certain height and that will be about it. hopefully, that will give us a little bit of shade through the it won't be a whole lot. we take a look at our temperature. we get into the 8:00 hour this time of year, we tend to see the temperatures chiming pretty quickly. southwest wind at five miles per hour. our dew point is at 74. we take a look at temperatures across the region. 74 in henderson. 78 in south hill. 74 in sanford. 75 in southern pines. so on a die line today where it is very humid, we would have
8:47 am
surface ever werth and we would have rising air and thunderstorms would take place. but that is not was going to happen today. here is why. we have what we call the bermuda high which is a permanent fix tour -- fixture out in the atlantic. every once this a while it noses in across north carolina or across the southeast and it sort of puts a lid on the thunderstorms developing. while it is very huge you had here on the ground and we're feeling it, the mid an upper levels of the atmosphere seeing sinking air and thos they troy to tower up will hit that lid or that ceiling and with the sinking air, they won't be able to develop into thunderstorms. the periphery of that high pressure system is where we have not as much sinking air. this is where the thunderstorms are going to be developing. so it will be down into south carolina near the south carolina line, up into the mountains of north carolina and then up into pennsylvania. right around the triangle area, we'll just be fairly out of luck. now, there will probably be a sea breeze front that develops just inland from the coast but
8:48 am
our viewing area, it will all fall apart. that is the only spot chose by. we may have some storms again. we'll see them down into south carolina and into the mountains. that continues on friday, saturday, sundayment we have about a 20% chance of rain today and tomorrow and only a 10 or 15% chance over weekend. high of 93 today. that will be one of the cooler days of the next seven. that is not the entire story. the heat index will make it feel like 100 afternoon. expect that again on friday. on saturday, though, it may feel more like 105, maybe 106 in some places. that is the threshold where we go under a heat advisory. so it is certainly possible that by tomorrow the weather service will be looking at this and we may go under the heat advisory for saturday and sunday. 96 is a god bit above normal. normal is 89. the record is 100.
8:49 am
far from it. look at that 71. that was the coolest high temperature for the date on sunday. tuesday and wednesday, still fairly hot and the heat index will still be high. i think by the end of next week, we'll tart to bring our temperatures back down closer to normal. so a little heat wave on our hands for the next few days. just plan around. >> it plenty of water w v we know -- we know at this point. state attractions. visitation increased by 7.7%. the top five places where attend's is up are the north carolina museum of art, north carolina state parks, the southeastern center for contemporary art, the north carolina zoo and the battleship north carolina. visitors to the north carolina museum of art will soon find new outdoor attractions. several works of art will be installed in the museum's newly expanded 164-acre park. the museum is hole a
