With a record high, the heat is back in Beaufort

Pretty sunset, or burning sky?

Update April 3: Yep, not only was it hot, it was officially hot.

Monday's high of 90 blew away (oh what we would do for a breeze) record high of 86 set in 1935.

The story was much the same in Charleston with a high of 91 besting the 2006 high of 90. However, down in Savannah the record high of 91 set in 1940 held against yesterday's high of 90. 

First reporting: It's been a rather warm start to 2012, but wether you're ready or not, we're due to hit the 90 degree mark.

Look for us to hit the high near 3 p.m. and a temperature close to 80 at sunset.

Oh, and today's warm start is expected to be followed up by more mild highs near 80, but the rest of the week will also bring solid chances of thunderstorms.
