CHARLESTON — A third day of oppressive heat is forecast along the South Carolina coast.


Just as on Thursday and Friday, temperatures are expected to climb Saturday into the upper 90s along the coast and in the Pee Dee.


And with moderate humidity, that is expected to again mean heat indexes – what it really feels like outside – of upward to 110 degrees. Similar conditions existed on Thursday and Friday when the National Weather Service issued heat advisories for the area.


Forecasters warned people to wear light clothing, drink a lot of liquids and stay out of the direct sun.


Temperatures are expected to cool a bit later in the weekend. Sunday’s highs are forecast to be only around 90 degrees.
