GREENSBORO – You just knew something like this was coming.
Sure, we had a few warm days this summer, sometimes really hot. But nothing compares to what will hit Greensboro in the next two weeks. We’re talking about a range of over 90 days that you can fry an egg on your face.
That’s if you don’t burn spontaneously first.
Yes, summer in the south has finally emerged in all its sweat-soaked glory.
According to the National Weather Service, the temperatures will be just over 90 degrees by Thursday.
It’s going to get worse next week. The temperatures will be above 90 degrees again. Every. Day.
Monday through Wednesday forecasters are saying the high will be – are you ready for it? – 95 degrees. Thursday, well, it’s only 94.
We should just move to Tatooine.
A heat warning, which went into effect across Piedmont by 9 p.m. Monday, marked the beginning of a “dangerously hot” week in Greensboro and neighboring cities, said the National Weather Service in Raleigh.
Forecasters expect a heat index of 100 to 109 and high humidity that will last most of the week, with rain showers and afternoon thunderstorms accompanying the heat every day.
