Weather - Here's Marla's First Alert Weather forecast:

It's back to school for Horry County students, but it still feels like summer. We'll see another afternoon of 90s on Wednesday with a heat index near 103°. Expect a few more scattered storms to last into the evening, gradually ending after sunset. We start to see big changes Thursday as a cold front arrives. This may bump up the coverage of the rain a bit throughout the day.

Behind the front, we finally tap into some cooler and less humid weather! Temperatures area-wide hold in the 80s throughout the weekend with low humidity. Rain chances look low for the weekend. Some models hint at a tropical low pressure well off our coast that could send some clouds and a few showers to the beaches at the beginning next week.
