MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Showers and storms will be likely at times all the way through the weekend.

With abundant humidity in place, storms will continue to rumble around the area at times from today all the way through early next week.

Today will see a muggy start to the day with a few showers possible in the morning. With temperatures climbing into the upper 80s at the beach and lower 90s inland, the atmosphere will once again become very unstable. Showers and storms will start to develop by the early afternoon and drift across the region through the evening. While no widespread severe weather is expected, the storms will be capable of producing locally heavy rain and dangerous lightning at times.
