MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Storms have cleared out of the area, leaving cooler temperatures and clearing skies in their wake this weekend.

With the strong winds, the rip current risk will also remain very high, so it is not advised to get in the ocean tonight or Sunday. The ocean temperatures are pretty cool to begin with, still in the middle 60s. This rip current risk will likely remain high into the beginning of Easter Sunday too.

Sunrise Sunday services for Easter will feature cool temperatures and gradually calming winds. Any Easter egg hunts in the afternoon will be underneath mostly sunny skies and temperatures getting to near 70.

The upcoming week will be drier, featuring a warming trend by the middle of the week to near 80.

Monday will feature mostly sunny skies and a return to middle 70s. Temperatures into the 80s move in by Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon before cooler air moves in by Thursday evening. Our next rain chance likely arrives by Friday, although storms at this time are not expected.
