MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A front stalled just to our south and tropical moisture streaming into the region will continue to produce rounds of rain over the next 36 to 48 hours.
That heavy rain is affecting the roads, causing flooding and forcing Fair Bluff Highway in the Green Sea area to close around 4:22 p.m. Friday, according to the SC Department of Public Safety. It had cleared by 6:30 p.m. and the road reopened.
The risk of rain will continue through the night along with unseasonably cool weather. Overnight lows will once again drop into the 60s. Periods of rain and even a few thunderstorms will continue on Saturday.
The rain may be heavy at times and another 1 to 2 inches is likely with some areas seeing up to 3 inches. It will start to warm up a bit with highs in the upper 70s to near 80. Sunday will start to see a slow drying trend. There may even be a few peaks of sunshine, but we'll still have the chance of scattered showers and storms.
