HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – After a wetter-than-average summer with rains that often resulted in flooding, the area is once again under a dry spell. So far in the month of September, North Myrtle Beach has seen less than an inch and a half of rain, with Florence recording less than an inch. These numbers are significantly lower than the summer months, when flooding was an issue for many, especially residents along areas of the Waccamaw River.

In the month of September, Florence recorded 0.91 inches of rain, which is about 2.64 inches below normal. August had 4.44 inches, a whopping 14.91 inches fell in July, and 8.28 in June. North Myrtle Beach received only 1.36 inches in September (4.74 inches below normal), with 4.19 in August, 6.68 in July and 12.45 in June. September has been the driest month in North Myrtle Beach since January; it has been the driest month for Florence in over two years- the last month to receive less rain was June of 2011, when only 0.3 inches of rain fell in the area.

No rain is expected within the area until Sunday, when there is a 30% chance of showers for the beaches and inland area. The WMBF Storm Team is currently forecasting a 40% chance of rain for the area on Monday.
