Uncomfortable Heat into Sunday

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - High temperatures will once again top off in the mid 90’s for the Lowcountry. Stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade if you must be outdoors, as heat index levels could be around 100 again. Despite a weak front that will try to move through the area on Sunday, most spots will remain dry.

A more summer-like pattern will kick in on Monday with afternoon storm and shower chances. This chance will occur each afternoon with a warm start to the week. By the end of the work week, we’ll get back to high temperatures in the 80’s with a better rain chance into the weekend.

We’re watching an area of showers and storms off the coast of the Leeward Islands that has about a 20% chance of formation in the next 5 days. There is another disturbance a few hundred miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands that has a 40% chance of development in the next 5 days. It’s too far out to tell if either system will impact the U.S., but we’ll give you the first alert to any changes.

SUNDAY: hot, HIGH: 94.

MONDAY: Hot, chance of storms, HIGH: 94.

TUESDAY: Chance of a scattered thunderstorm, HIGH: 92.

WEDNESDAY: Still warm, chance of showers, HIGH: 90.

THURSDAY: Chance of scat’d storms, HIGH: 89.
