Figure it’s time for a thread with Van Denton saying it could be the longest duration heat wave in over 100 years for NC. Post your records, obs, fires, moaning here.

To specify, record for the earliest long lived heatwave for GSO and nearby.

This is a very worthy thread as we're talking high potential of the worst for so early in the season in terms of a combination of intensity (highest on record for May), duration (5 or so days as opposed to just a 1-2 day event), and extensiveness (large portion of the SE).

We had better hope this is not a harbinger of what's to come this summer, or we will be looking at another historical summer. #deathby1000

Welp, my only complaint is that the bass won’t bite as much during this extremely hot weather, especially since it’s post spawn, but yet again there under bridges and tree lines :)

Not sure if RDU can go over 99 to break the all time may record. Think someone in the Fay to GSB corridor goes into the 100-102 range though. The only real thing that could hold temps back could be some debris clouds coming down in the NW flow

While it looks like us in AL will miss the brunt of the heat, it still looks plenty hot. Thankfully Ill be on the beach for a work conference most of next week.

Mountains like Boone NC are going to torch beyond 80 degrees. That’s hot for them. Long duration too if no storm.

7+ days of 90+ is noteworthy for up this way. Dangerous heat. Splash pads and pools will be crowded. I’m going to Carowinds.

Watching that circle of snow just demolish the black hills of South Dakota. Rain all around a small area of winter storm warnings.

The 12Z Euro still has the heatwave starting Fri 5/24 with mod to high 90s in many places but now has 100s extending all the way to Thu 5/30 instead of just to 5/29. The Euro continues to be significantly hotter than the GFS. From what I've read, the euro is exhibiting a warm bias due to it having dewpoints too low/too dry air that warms up too quickly. But even after shaving off a few degrees from the Euro, it still has low 100s in many places 5/25-30! History appears to be on our doorstep.

Oh boy I can't wait! Why can't we make history when it comes to cold and snow?

On the bright side it appears the humidity levels will be lower so it will be a "drier heat" with the heat index close to the actual temperature.
