Scorching temps expected to climb to 100 degrees

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - As a new week starts, the heat and humidity will return in force Monday to make it feel like late Summertime even though Summer does not officially even start until Tuesday!

Temperatures will begin Monday hovering around 80 degrees, which could set a new record high for the low temperature. As the day moves forward looks for sun and clouds, highs will be back in the upper 90's to low 100's inland away from the coast.

Combine the high humidity and dew points and that will make the heat index soar back over 105-112 degrees by late afternoon.

A Heat Advisory is in effect from noon until 8 p.m. so be careful if you have to be outdoors Monday. Drink plenty of water and try and take some breaks in the air conditioning when you can.

There is a chance of some pop-up afternoon storms be the overall pattern does not support a lot of wet weather. We will cap the rain chance at 20 percent along the sea breeze. A few storms that do pop up could have gusty winds and some hail so watch out for that.

Expect another muggy night with low temps in the upper 70's and a few passing clouds. There is a chance of some storms moving north of us later this evening into the morning hours on Tuesday.
