development. what we have is a lot of heat and humidity and that means our heat index is going to be high. it is going to climb this afternoon to 105. we will see that again on both saturday and sunday. 92 is the high temperature for today. our chances for showers and thunderstorms only about 20% or so. we may have isolated showers that cannot produce a whole lot of rain pop up. tiny showers popped up yesterday . the further south and east you are the better chance of seeing those because we will have a friend that develops in some of those who move into sampson county, cumberland county in wayne county. those areas have a better chance of scattered thunderstorms. for saturday and sunday the heat index climbing up to 100 and 105. it doesn't quite put us into heat advisory criteria, but we
