Rain On The Way Out... Heat On The Way Back!
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The area of low pressure that brought all the heavy rain and flooding will be pulling away into the overnight. Storms will become less numerous as we head through the night. We should be mainly dry by this evening and we’ll likely stay dry through Friday.
The big story going forward will be the oppressive heat that begins on Thursday. Highs will soar into the mid to upper 90s Thursday through Sunday with the humidity increasing over the next couple days. This will result in increasing heat indices with heat index values near 105° on Thursday, peaking near 110°-115° Friday and Saturday and near 105°-110° on Sunday. Heat Advisories are likely Friday and Saturday and we have issued FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAYS as a result. Make sure you are limiting time outdoors, staying hydrated and checking on your elderly neighbors later this week! A few hit or miss storms are possible Saturday, which could provide some relief from the heat. Activity will become more widespread Sunday into next week.
