FIRST ALERT: New Year’s Eve forecast

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The final morning of 2018 will feature warmer temperatures in the middle to upper 50s. With winds beginning to move onshore, there is a likely chance of sea fog developing in the morning along the Grand Strand. More patchy fog could also reduce visibility before 8 AM across the Pee Dee as well. This would reduce visibility less than a quarter of a mile and slow you down. Remember to use your low beams.

Marla's New Year's Eve forecast

New Year’s Eve will see mild weather returning once again with afternoon temperatures near 70. While a few peaks of sun will be possible, mostly cloudy skies continue to be in control. By the evening, when you are getting ready for midnight celebrations, the rain chances will only be an isolated chance at 20% and mild midnight temperatures in the 60s!

New Year’s Day will feature a small risk of rain in the afternoon along with another round of unseasonably warm temperatures in the lower 70s.

Another round of significant rain is possible by late Wednesday and Thursday of next week. By the time the rain finally comes to an end Friday morning, rain totals are likely to reach 1 to 3 inches across most of the region. The rain should remain spread out enough to prevent any significant flooding. Cooler weather will gradually start to return to the region by Thursday.
