Temperatures may not climb into the triple digits today, but a heat advisory is still in effect for the Triangle, according to the National Weather Service in Raleigh.
The high temperature in the Triangle today is expected to be in the upper 90s after exceeding 100 for three consecutive days. But "people still need to take proper precautions to prevent heat-related illness and limit their time outside," said Mike Strickler, a meteorologist with the weather service.
There is a chance of scattered showers and storms this afternoon, starting about 2 p.m.
Temperatures are expected to peak in the mid-90s through Friday, which is relatively cool compared with the sweltering weekend temperatures, but still about five degrees above normal for this time of year, Strickler said.
