    Seasonably hot and humid weather will linger through the rest of the week before rain chances increase again by the weekend.  This afternoon will be another hot one with temperatures near 90 at the beach and the lower and middle 90s across the Pee Dee. The heat index will climb to around 100 for most of the afternoon. While most areas will stay dry, a few spots may see a brief afternoon storm.
