MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Increasing humidity will lead to scattered showers and storms at times through the weekend.

The humidity will continue to gradually increase today making it feel noticeably more muggy through the afternoon. Temperatures will reach the lower 80s along the beaches and into the middle 80s across the Pee Dee. The combination of the warmth and increasing humidity will spark off just one or two isolated showers today - mainly inland.

Tonight will be mild and muggy with temperatures only dropping to near 70 at the beach and the middle to upper 60s inland.

Saturday will see the humidity increasing a bit more and temperatures returning to the lower to middle 80s. A weak cold front will settle into the region by late in the day and will help to slightly increase the risk of showers and storms. Most of Saturday will be dry, but the late afternoon and evening will see a few more hit or miss storms developing with the best chances remaining well inland.

Keep a check of the First Alert Weather App especially if you have outdoor plans on Sunday.
