MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF)  - Summertime heat and humidity with a few storms stick around around for Thursday and Friday before more active weather arrives to kick off the weekend.

Thursday and Friday will see typically hot and humid summer time weather with both days featuring a 30% chance of afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms.  Temperatures will climb into the upper 80s at the beach and lower 90s inland. 

Our next big weather maker arrives by the weekend.  A cold front will approach the region on Saturday.  As the front draws closer, it will interact with high humidity in place to produce a good chance of thunderstorms especially Saturday afternoon and evening.  Very little in the way of severe weather is expected, but some of the storms will have locally heavy rain and frequent lightning.  

The cold front will settle south of the region by late Sunday into early next week.  This will bring a slight break to the heat, humidity and storms.  By Monday and Tuesday, temperatures will stay below 90 in the afternoon, nights will be a bit more comfortable and afternoon storms will take a break.
