A hot and humid Fourth of July is expected across the Lowcountry as we prepare for the hottest week so far this year.
Highs Monday will be in the middle 90s inland and in the upper 80s at the beaches.
Live 5 News Meteorologist Joey Sovine says there will be a few afternoon and evening storms. Most of the rain should diminish by fireworks time this evening, however.
High temperatures will climb into the upper 90s over the next few days with most inland spots around 100 degrees by Friday and Saturday.
"The heat index will likely be between 105 and 100° all week long," Sovine says.
