CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Hot and humid for the rest of the afternoon, temperatures will be in the low 90s with plenty of sunshine. Tonight will be mostly clear and comfortable with lows in the 60s. Hot weather will be the big story tomorrow and on Thursday before our next cold front arrives. That cold front will move through on the first day of fall, Thursday, with lower humidity and cooler temperatures expected for Friday and the weekend. Highs on Friday will struggle to reach 80 degrees with morning lows on Saturday in the mid to upper 50s inland, mid to upper 60s at the coast. A sunny first weekend of Fall is expected with highs in the mid 80s by Sunday afternoon.

TROPICS: Hurricane Fiona will move away from the Turks and Caicos as a major hurricane. Fiona will stay well off the east coast of the United States but could pass close to Bermuda later this week. Swell from Fiona will begin impacting our beaches on Wednesday bringing the threat of dangerous surf and rip currents. Tropical Depression Eight developed over the central Atlantic this morning. This system is forecast to approach the Azores later this week as a tropical storm. Elsewhere, a disturbance east of the Caribbean will be watched the rest of this week as it moves through the Caribbean and likely becomes a named storm. Models show the potential for a significant storm to track into the Western Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico next week. We’ll keep you updated!
