100-110 Heat Index Possible this Weekend

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Tropical Storm Fay is moving far away from the Mid Atlantic coast, well away from the area. As Fay pulls away, drier air will move our way allowing for more sunshine and fewer storms. While there may fewer storms, the storms that develop of the next few days could be strong with heavy rain, frequent lightning and gusty winds. The heat will be our main concern this weekend with heat indices as high as 110 possible into the afternoon hours. Stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade or air conditioning throughout the weekend as heat exhaustion will easily occur with prolonged outdoor activities.

SATURDAY: Hot and humid, slight PM chance, HIGH: 94.

SUNDAY: Hot, mainly dry, HIGH: 95.

MONDAY: Warm and humid, chance of a storm, HIGH: 93.

TUESDAY: Chance of scat’d storms, hot, HIGH: 94.

WEDNESDAY: Warm with the slight chance of showers or storms, HIGH: 93.
