CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAYS continue for Friday, Saturday and Sunday as we brace for another round of prolonged excessive heat! Get ready for a hot and humid stretch of weather as the heat index heads over 100°. More heat and more humidity is expected heading into the weekend. Scattered showers or storms will be possible each day, with slightly higher chances over the weekend. Daily highs will reach the mid 90s with heat index between 105-110° each afternoon Friday through the weekend. Due to excessive heat, we have issued the First Alert Weather Days and we urge you to exercise caution this weekend. Remember to stay hydrated, take frequent breaks in the a/c and check on your elderly neighbors!

It appears that this stretch of dangerous heat may be quite prolonged. Computer models are showing the peak of the heat toward the second half of next week with highs near 100° and heat index values over 110°. Stay safe!
