Clouds move in tonight, more temperature swings into the work week

Sean's Sunday Evening Update

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A few stray showers are moving through the coast this evening, but the clouds keep us mild overnight in the middle to upper 30s.

Clouds continue to move in Sunday night into a gray Monday along the coast with sunnier skies inland. As a low pressure system skirts along the coast, the clouds will increase through the morning and afternoon on Monday. The rain chances are small, only about 20% along the immediate coastline. The persistent clouds keep temperatures closer to 50 on Monday for highs. Inland areas have a better chance of brighter skies, so temperatures will be a bit higher, near 55.

The cool weather lingers into Monday before a brief warm-up into Tuesday. In fact, most areas climb well into the 60s for Tuesday afternoon. It won’t last long as our next shot of cold air quickly filters back in.

Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning there is a small window of opportunity for rain on the tail end of the cold front. The rain chances start around 6PM and remain scattered through the overnight hours. Any wet weather will be light and wrap up well before Wednesday morning’s chilly commute.

Temperatures turn cold again by the end of next week. Afternoon highs will struggle to climb to the low to middle 40s for Wednesday and Thursday. Expecting more mornings below-freezing with areas of frost likely through Friday morning.

The weekend is trending upwards! High temperatures Saturday will be in the 50s and go as high as the middle to upper 60s by Sunday afternoon. Rain chances hold off until the following Monday.
