A Heat Advisory is in effect for potions of the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry from 12 to 7 p.m.
While high pressure is gradually loosening its grip, hot weather remains in the forecast. If you're looking to get outdoor exercise done in a more comfortable manner - do it before 11 a.m.
Temperatures are in the mid to upper 70s this morning with relatively high humidity. The temperature warms into the 80s before 10 a.m. and lower 90s at noon. Heat indices in the upper 90s and lower 100s are expected during your "lunch break".
The heat index peaks between 103° and 107° this afternoon.
Like yesterday, a couple storms may bubble up after 1 p.m. Whatever develops remains isolated, but may still produce gusty winds, heavy rain and vivid lightning.
If you're beating the heat at the pool and hear thunder – head indoors. Let the storm pass and thunder stop for at least 30 minutes, before returning.
The forecast features slightly greater rain chances tomorrow and Saturday with continued hot weather. Sunday will be the slightly hotter, drier, day of the weekend.
