A significant portion of the U.S. east coast’s northern half is under some form of heat-based warning on Sunday. These warnings are issued by the National Weather Service (NWS), and include the Raleigh area. Raleigh is under a Heat Advisory, which refers to a period of high temperatures, according to a NWS weather message.
“Hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible,” the message stated. “Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors.”
The heat advisory is set to expire at 6 a.m. on Monday.
