MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Chris will continue to churn offshore through Tuesday before heading out to sea and leading to a  humidity and pop up storms. 

Northerly winds on the back side of Chris, located about 270 miles offshore, will continue to usher in lower humidity and a nice break from the typical summer time mugginess.  This will be felt once again tonight with a taste of early fall.  Temperatures by early Tuesday morning will range from the lower 60s inland to the middle 60s along the Grand Strand. 

Tuesday will see another day of low humidity, but temperatures will begin to warm up quickly.  Under abundant sunshine, afternoon temperatures will reach the upper 80s and lower 90s.

The heat will build further on Wednesday along with increasing humidity.  Afternoon temperatures will soar into the lower and middle 90s. 

By Thursday, typical summertime humidity returns along with plenty of heat.  Scattered afternoon and evening storms are likely both Thursday and Friday. 

Later this week we'll also be watching well off of our coast again (in roughly the same area Chris is now) for the remnants of Beryl to regenerate into a tropical system. At this time, we aren't expecting any impacts, but of course we'll keep an eye on it.
