FIRST ALERT: Dangerous Heat Continues!
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - We’re in the midst of the hottest stretch of weather since May of 2019 when we reached 100° four consecutive days. While we don’t expect temps to be quite that hot, highs will climb into the upper 90s with heat indices over 110° for the next 4 days or so. FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAYS are in effect through Friday as we want to urge everyone to exercise extreme caution and limit your time outdoors over the upcoming days. Stay in the a/c as much as possible, stay hydrated and check on your elderly neighbors!
A stray shower or storm is possible Wednesday and Thursday but we expect a slightly better chance of afternoon and evening storms by the upcoming weekend. Highs will climb close to 100° for inland areas Thursday and Friday with heat index values over 115° in spots. With a better chance of showers by the weekend, temperatures may be closer to normal lower 90′s Saturday and Sunday.
