FIRST ALERT: Rain chances and high humidity returning

Rain chances Rain chances

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) Increasing humidity will lead to a return to daily shower and thunderstorm chances through the weekend. 

The nice weather over the last few days comes to an end through the end of the week and into the weekend as abundant moisture returns to the region. 

You'll notice the increase in humidity as early as tonight with temperatures only dropping into the upper 60s inland and lower 70s at the beach. 

Thursday will start of mild and more muggy with mostly cloudy skies.  A surge of tropical moisture arriving from the south will bring the chance of a few showers as early as the Thursday morning commute.  Thursday will not see an all-day washout, but the risk of a shower or downpour will exist at any point during the day.  The best shower chance will be across the Grand Strand, with lower chances further inland across the Pee Dee. 

Moisture will continue to increase from Friday into the weekend.  While it will not be a total washout, periods of showers and storms will be likely at times especially in the afternoon and evening. No widespread severe weather is expected, but some of the storms will likely produce locally heavy rain and frequent lightning at times.
