WMBF FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Dry and cool today with big changes on the horizon

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) This morning is starting of once again very cold in the low to mid 20s. This afternoon we will begin to bring in clouds and temperatures will be in the mid 40s. Overnight, mostly cloudy conditions continue which will keep us slightly warmer than this morning. By Thursday morning we fall into the upper 20s inland and the lower 30s on the coast. Thursday is looking dry but cloudy and slightly warmer. Highs will be in the upper 40s.

By Friday, all the attention turns to a storm system that is currently brewing in the west. This system will dip down, pick up moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and move up the east coast. This will bring a lot of rain to the coastal areas and inland areas to start the day on Friday. By Friday night, this system may wrap around enough cold air to switch some of the precip to the frozen form.

We are still working the specifics out but this could bring the first round of winter weather to our northern counties. For now, we are still expecting a plain, cold rain. We dry out and cool off for the end of the weekend and the start to the workweek before another system brings rain to the area for Tuesday.
