Yep, an air temp of 90 in the shade and humidity of 75% equals a heat index of 109. The danger zone.

The heat index is based on air temp and humidity. The normal average high for Charlotte in July is 90.1F That is not the heat index.

I wouldn't say a Heat Index of 109 would be the highest ever, but it would be somewhat unusual above that figure.

I'm just saying that an shaded air temp of 90.1 with a humidity around 75% is considered normal for Charlotte in July. If the shaded air temp and/or humidity rises above the norm, the heat index of 109 will too. Only time will tell.

The state record for highest air temp was set in August 1983 in Fayetteville - 110F. I have no idea what the humidity was, so the Heat Index is unknown.

I believe the highest air temp ever recorded in Charlotte was 103F. Heat Index is unknown.

The only areas of the state that don't have muggy summers are the mountains and the coast.
I strongly, strongly, totally disagree about the coast not being muggy in the summer!

I live here & I assure you it most definately is.

In the coastal areas, the summer humidity is 100%, very frequently. Adding to that, our dewpoint is often 70 degrees, and can be as high as 80 degrees.

Default last summer OBX

in August it was really muggy & humid. Usually the ocean breezes make it nice
but sadly we had to crank the a/c.
