Last week was a scorcher so another Sprinkler Fun Day was very welcome relief in downtown Goldsboro as kids were busy Thursday afternoon playing under the sprinkler on South Center Street.
Members of the Goldsboro Fire Department set up the sprinkler to allow the kids to enjoy running through and cooling off. Another Sprinkler Fun Day is scheduled for Thursday.
The NCNN WeatherCenter says Monday will be a bit more humid than Saturday, and our heat index is expected to reach 95 degrees. A cold front will move in on Monday afternoon, and bring moisture and unsettled conditions where showers and storms are possible.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, temperatures are going to dip back into the upper 70s and lower 80s.
“We get into some much cooler air behind a front, that’s going to bring us some showers and thunderstorms on Monday.” NCNN meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said.
A tropical depression could form early this week as it moves west across the Atlantic.
“Not looking like major development or any effects for the U.S. as of now, but we will keep watching it. Most likely, the track would take it toward Mexico,” said NCNN meteorologist Anthony Baglione.
If the system does develop, the next name on the list is Bonnie. At this point, the threat to the U.S. remains low.
