FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Heat advisory issued as record-breaking temps expected


For the second straight day, a heat advisory has been issued throughout the Lowcountry. 

The National Weather Service issued a heat advisory Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. for Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, and Dorchester counties. 

Temperatures Tuesday are expected to crack 100 degrees, with the high set for 101. Moderate humidity levels will push the heat index closer to 110 degrees. 

With the temperature expected to hit triple digits, Tuesday could be a record-setting day in Charleston. The current record of 100 degrees was set in 1981, with Charleston last hitting that number on June 21, 2011. 

Officials say similar conditions will continue through the work week, leading to more possible heat advisories. 

The dangerous heat will affect parts of southeast South Carolina and Georgia.
