WMBF FIRST ALERT FORECAST: More rain and records highs likely

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) Another soggy and mild day. Rain showers move in early - starting in the Pee Dee first and then moving towards the coast. The further inland you go, the better chance of rain you'll have. Also, looking like inland areas will pick up more rain than coastal areas. Highs will once again be near record territory, in the mid to upper 70s.

The rain lingers through New Years Eve and for overnight celebrations, you may be a little wet. Especially along the Grand Strand. 70s continue for Thursday. A few showers may linger New Years Day but drier air and more sunshine moves.

The rain that we're experiencing is associated with a cold front that will finally drop our temperatures to near or below average for an extended amount of time. This weekend looks seasonable with highs in the low to mid 50s with sunshine and overnight lows in the 30s and 40s.
