MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - More heat is on the way through the next 7 days, with several daily high temperature records in jeopardy of being usurped.
Tonight, with all the humidity and calmer winds, the potential for fog lasts through the late night and early hours tomorrow morning. Keep an extra eye out for bikers tonight. Temperatures remain very warm into the middle 70s Sunday morning.
Sunday and Monday build upon the heat as high pressure settles in. Air temperatures climb into the low 90s in the Grand Strand and near 100° across the Pee Dee. With the added bonus of the humidity, the heat index will feel closer to 100° to 105°. Rain chances are bleak at best, with only an isolated sea breeze shower to provide any brief relief.
Tuesday through Thursday the heat streak continues. We could very well see our first 100° temperature reading in Florence in nearly 4 years, especially Wednesday. Highs along the Grand Strand could also break or tie records as they reach into the middle to low 90s. Heat index remains near 100°.
Friday...We have a rain chance! The latest trends focus a cold front moving in Friday evening, bringing a chance for showers. This front appears to stall out through the weekend, bringing at least some much needed scattered showers through the weekend. Stay tuned as we tweak the forecast for any relief.
