MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The skies are clearing and making way for an enjoyable Friday evening after a line of storms with strong winds and lightning arrived in the Grand Strand mid afternoon.
Those storms brought with them winds that could gust to 40 or 50 mph, said Storm Team Meteorologist Jamie Arnold, but by 6 p.m. the clouds and rain were letting up.
That line of storms was the second to make its way across the Pee Dee and Grand Strand Friday. The first woke many of our viewers before they planned to crawl from under the covers and get ready for work.
They even prompted a flood advisory in parts of Horry County until about 7:50 a.m. that included North Myrtle Beach, Little River, Atlantic Beach, Briarcliffe Acres, Conway, Myrtle Beach, Carolina Forest, Longs and Socastee, said Meteorologist Jessica Ryan.
