FIRST ALERT: Brief break from humidity Wednesday

Summer heat continues this week

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - A slight drop in humidity arrives on Wednesday before more heat and high humidity settles in for the end of the week and into the weekend.

Temperatures and humidity will drop slightly on Wednesday, providing for a little bit of relief for the middle of the week. Unfortunately, that moisture returns to our area by the end of the week and quickly brings the humidity back in full force for Thursday and Friday.
