MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - As Chris pulls away from the east coast of the US, heat and humidity will return to summertime levels with a few chances of showers and storms.

Tonight will be much milder than the record-breaking cool temperatures we saw early Tuesday.  Wednesday morning temperatures will range from the lower 70s at the beach to the upper 60s to near 70 inland.

Heat returns with a vengeance on Wednesday as afternoon temperatures soar. Readings will creep into the lower 90s at the beaches and middle and upper 90s inland.  The humidity will gradually increase through the day, but the forecast remains rain-free.

By Thursday, typical summertime humidity returns along with plenty of heat.  Afternoon temperatures reach the upper 80s and lower 90s with scattered afternoon and evening storms likely.

A few more storms will be likely again on Friday.  By the weekend, the forecast turns rain-free again with seasonably hot and humid weather both Saturday and Sunday.
