MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Cloudy skies continue, with on and off rain moving in as we head into the work week.

The clouds have kept a lid on the temperatures today, only allowing the Pee Dee to reach the middle 40s and the Grand Strand to get to 50. Through the night, the temperatures will rise as warm, moist air fills in from the southwest. We start off Monday morning milder, in the middle to low 50s.

Rain mostly through the morning.

Shower chances are mostly likely in the morning tomorrow. Areas inland will see the rain through 5AM to 10AM and the showers arriving into the Grand Strand between 8AM and noon. The rest of the day will trend drier, with warmer temperatures into the middle 60s. The sun will still struggle to come out, so we will still be stuck with the clouds on Monday.

The rain chances still stay lower for Tuesday, as the bulk of the rain remains west. The trends for rain go up into Wednesday, which will be our best day to see a steady and soaking rain. Thursday continues our rain chances, through they will be more scattered inland and more widespread along the coast.

More rain is likely on and off through Friday and Saturday, with one final push of showers Sunday before a drier air mass moves in early next week. Of course the timing on this will be something we watch and fine tune throughout the week.
