MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Heat and humidity will continue through the weekend with just a few storms from time to time today. A brief break in the heat arrives midweek.

Today will be very similar with temperatures ranging from 90 to 95 and the heat index up to 100 to 104. Once again, most areas will remain dry, but a stray storm or two will be possible during the late afternoon and evening.

Sunday will see return to very high humidity and heat advisories will likely be in place in some areas as the heat index reaches above 105 by the afternoon.  Storm chances remain very low throughout the day.

Monday has the best chance of afternoon and evening showers and storms as a weak cold front approaches late in the day.  Ahead of the front, temperatures and humidity will remain high with Monday's readings in the lower and middle 90s. This cold front will also bring in slightly drier air and lower humidity.

Tuesday and Wednesday will see a subtle drop in humidity and heat.  Temperatures will drop into the middle and upper 80s at the beach and to near 90 across the Pee Dee.  The drop in humidity will also temporarily get rid of the risk of storms and lower the heat index into the low 90s instead of the triple digits.

Keep up with the chance for Monday's storms and midweek relief on the WMBF First Alert Weather App:
