Hot weather in store this week

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The weekend wrapped up hot and humid across the Lowcountry and the next five days don't look much different.

Monday morning started off mild and muggy and the temperatures will only head up from there. Most areas along the coast started Monday in the mid 70's with areas along Interstate 95 in the mid 60's.

By Monday afternoon, plenty of sunshine will warm us up to near record highs in some places. The Charleston Metro Area is on the way to a high around 92 to 94 degrees. Inland areas closer to the Savannah River could see highs back in the upper 90's with heat index values near 100.

Rain looks non-existent the next several days as a big ridge of summer-like high pressure sits right over our heads. Winds will stay light out of the south at 10-15 mph.

A few thin clouds are all that we will see Monday night as lows fall back near 70. Sun, clouds, heat and humidity are on tap for Tuesday through Friday with highs each day in the mid 90's and lows in the upper 60's.
