Dangerously high temps spark SC heat advisory

SOUTH CAROLINA (WMBF) - On the heels of dangerously high temperatures making their way back into the Palmetto State, the National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory through Wednesday afternoon.

Forecasters predict the combination of heat and humidity will rocket mid-day heat indexes towards the 108 degree mark. Temperatures across the Grand Strand and Pee Dee are expected to hit the mid-90s.

WMBF Storm Team Meteorologist Jamie Arnold says the endless heat and humidity will continue through much of the week, as a Bermuda High lingers off the Carolina shores. A sea breeze will help fuel the occasional isolated afternoon thunderstorm.

Relief from the intense summer heat could come as early as the weekend, as a new frontal system marches towards the Carolinas, bringing with it an increased chance of thunderstorm activity.
