RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Forecasters say dangerous heat is expected across much of central and eastern North Carolina.

The National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for much of central and eastern North Carolina for Monday from midday until early evening.

The weather service office in Raleigh says temperatures Monday will range from 96 to 102 degrees from Raleigh, Fayetteville, Greenville and Rocky Mount. The temperatures could yield heat index values that feel as hot as 106 degrees in several counties.

Similar conditions were expected along the southeast and central coast, with heat index readings as high as 107. That included the beaches near Wilmington, as well as along much of the Outer Banks.

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