FIRST ALERT: Hot as a firecracker on this Independence Day

(WIS) -

FIRST ALERT Weather Highlights: 

  • Hot and humid Independence Day with scattered afternoon storms

  • Heat Index of 103

  • Cold font moves in by Sunday, giving us cooler daytime highs and lower humidity

We are in the middle of summer and it’s a textbook forecast from the book of summer time weather in South Carolina!

Hot and humid afternoons with scattered late-day showers and thunderstorms. Some storms can produce vivid lightning and heavy rain. Heat Index of 103 can be expected this afternoon.

High pressure will move off to the east, allowing for a weak cold front to slide down into the state by the weekend. This will continue to give us a good chance of showers and thunderstorms. 

The font is looking like it will stall to our south by Monday. This will bring a bit cooler temperatures and low humidity for 48 hours. Then right back at it by the middle of next week.
