WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - The National Weather Service is issuing a heat advisory for counties up and down the Carolinas coast.

The National Weather Service office in Wilmington says that temperatures in the upper 90s could yield heat index values that feel as hot as 108 degrees in several counties in the southeastern part of the state, from the coast inland to Robeson County.

Forecasters in Columbia, South Carolina, have issued a heat advisory for counties along that state’s coast stretching to Georgia.

They advise people who are outside to drink fluid, wear light clothing and stay out of direct sunshine.

Inland, forecasters in Raleigh say temperatures could top 100 degrees at Raleigh-Durham International Airport this week for the first time in three years.
