MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - High humidity will continue to lead to off and on downpours and storms through the end of the week.

A few showers and storms will linger through the evening hours before dissipating after sunset this evening. The storms will not be as strong or as electrified as they were Monday evening. Temperatures will only drop into the middle and upper 70s overnight.

An on shore flow will help to push showers toward the beaches early in the day on Wednesday.

By the afternoon, the best chance of showers and storms will shift further inland as the sea breeze develops.
