MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Heat and humidity continue to build as we head towards the weekend.

Temperatures return to the lower 90s along the Grand Strand, upper 90s across the Pee Dee. The heat index will likely climb above 100 to 105 at times and it's likely heat advisories to be issued for the afternoon, particularly inland. 

A more widespread chance for scattered showers arrives after about 2pm along the coast and inland between 3pm to 6pm. Storms are not expected to be strong, but could bring some brief downpours and gusty winds.

The heat will be the main story this weekend as the heat index remains above 105 through Sunday. More heat advisories look likely through the weekend. The next relief from the heat won't arrive until Tuesday of next week, as storm chances look more likely by the middle of next week. 

The latest weekend forecast is on the WMBF First Alert Weather app.
