Sweltering news: It's HOT in Beaufort

After a so-far unseasonably cool month of May, the dreaded heat and humidity have arrived in the Lowcountry.

It was HOT yesterday, topping out at 96 at the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, and today's forecast is calling for sun with a high near 95. Mind you, add in humidity and the whole "real feel" factor, and it's going to feel as though the outside temperature is actually well into the 90s and closer to 98-99 come 3-4 p.m.

The forecast for the next seven days is calling for much of the same high-80s, low-90s temperatures with no hint of rain on the horizon. Take a peep at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Detailed 7-day Forecast if you don't believe me.

Although these temperatures aren't considered official "extreme heat" situations, it is still important to take the necessary precautions to avoid overheating. We've got plenty of helpful tips to dealing with an surviving high heat temperatures; be sure you check 'em out.
