Columbia, SC (WLTX) - After having never experienced a temperature above 107 degrees in 125 years of record-keeping, Columbia has now seen two days like that in a row.
The high Saturday reached 109 degrees, tying the all-time record set a day earlier.
However, a reporting station at the University of South Carolina reported a temperature of 113 degrees. That same reading was made in the town of Johnston in Edgefield County.
Those measurements will be confirmed Monday by the State Climate Office. If those numbers hold up, they would eclipse to old record of 111, last seen in Camden in June of 1954.
No break from the heat is in sight. Forecast highs are for above 100 degree temperatures Sunday and Monday, and there's a possibility of triple digits Tuesday.
