1. It shouldn't be too crowded since it's a weekday. It would be different if you were going on a Saturday, but a Tuesday should be a lot lighter (especially with temperatures near 100 degrees).
2. I guess that depends on how well you handle the heat. If it were me, I'm not sure I'd go to Carowinds at all with temperatures like that, but if I had to go, I'd probably head over there no earlier than 6:00 PM. Your heat tolerance might be higher than mine, though.
3. I don't have a souvenir cup, but I'm sure you'd be allowed to fill it up with water. Even if they somehow don't let you, though (I don't know why they wouldn't), you could fill it up in a water fountain. Also, on days that are really hot, free cups of water are offered at pretty much every restaurant in the park. So regardless, you'll be just fine.
4. You won't be allowed to take your belongings on the vast majority of rides in the park. Almost all of the rides have bins on the ride platform where you'd drop off your stuff before you board. The only exception to this (as far as coasters go) is Fury. Unless you're going to the park with at least one nonrider who can hold your stuff, you'll have to buy a locker before you get in line. The good thing, though, is that these lockers are very cheap. I wish they were free myself, but I guess this system gives the park a bit more revenue.
EDIT: Oh, and one more tip. Because of the temperatures, Whitewater Falls would be a great ride to do if you don't mind getting wet. It'll get you soaked, but it'll also cool you down a lot. However, a lot of parkgoers might have the same idea, so I guess you'll have to decide if it's worth it.
