Update June 13: Just a reminder that today's heat is still due to be intense.

The National Weather Service has issued a warning that we're due for "near record heat" and that it's important to take precautions regarding staying hydrated and keeping out of the sun.

First reporting: The intense heat with little rain is due to continue for the foreseeable future. 

Today we're due to top out at 94 degrees with a feel just slightly higher, but the intense heat will hit on Monday as the mercury is due to hit 96 in Beaufort with a feel well over 100, near 105.

The National Weather Service had this to say: "Monday could be the hottest day of the period with temperatures near 100 degrees inland and southeast Georgia."

There's some hope for rain over the next 48 to 72 hours, but forecasters expect that any significant rainfall would fall closer to the PeeDee area.

As for the week through Thursday, expect a slight chance of thunderstorms and temperatures topping in the low 90s.

As always, stay current on our weather topic page.
