MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Seasonably hot and humid weather will persist this week with an increased risk of showers and storms for the Fourth of July.
Hot and humid again today as the thermometer reaches the upper 80s at the beach and the mid-90s inland. It will feel more like the mid-90s to 100 this afternoon. Only a stray shower or storm will be possible across the Pee Dee, but rain chances are only 20 percent.
A surge of moisture will move into the Carolinas from the Atlantic Ocean on Wednesday and may put a temporary damper on some July 4 activities. The moisture moving in will provide a good chance of showers and storms at times. The best time frame for downpours will be the first half of the day for the Grand Strand and in the early to mid-afternoon across the Pee Dee. The scattered storms are forecast to wind down fairly quickly by the late afternoon hours and most fireworks displays will be rain-free.
Thursday and Friday will see a return to just isolated showers and storms with typically hot and humid summer weather remaining in place.
