MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A cold front will deliver a few scattered showers late Friday followed by cooler weather this weekend.

A very warm and windy Friday is on tap as gusty southerly winds push temperatures to 80° across the Pee Dee and into the middle 70s along the Grand Strand. Mostly sunny skies this morning will gradually feature thickening clouds by the late afternoon.

Temperatures climb to 75-80 today.

By this evening, a cold front will start to approach the area. Ahead of this front, a band of showers will move across the region. Showers will move across the inland areas between 4:00 PM and 8:00 PM this evening and through the Grand Strand between 6:00 PM and 9:00 PM. The showers will be spotty, fast moving and generally light, and some areas will stay rain free. Only a little relief from the high pollen levels is expected with the scattered showers.
