Say goodbye to triple-digit temps, meteorologists say

People worried after a week of warmth can stop sweating -- figuratively at least.

The days of record-setting heat have come to an end.

Though it will still be warm, it won't be getting any hotter, meteorologists said Friday, predicting cooler temperatures in the 90s.

Temperatures peaked at 103 degrees in Rock Hill on Friday afternoon. Prior to this week, it had not been that hot since Aug. 23, 1983. Thursday's high temperature was 104 degrees, matching a York County record set on Sept. 6, 1954.

Temperatures will begin to level off over the weekend but will still be in the 90s for most of next week, said Neil Dixon of the National Weather Service.

"It looks like our best chance of getting below 90 will be Friday," he said.
