FIRST ALERT: Storms wrapping up, heat heading up Sunday

Sean's Saturday Evening Forecast

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The storms that dumped 2-3 inches of rain along the Grand Strand are slowly winding down. Rain chances drop through the night, as the lingering rain showers push off shore.

Rain chances turn lower on Sunday as most of the area remains rain-free. There is a trade-off though, temperatures will continue to climb. Afternoon highs top out in the lower 90s through Sunday afternoon but it will feel hotter than that. The heat index by Sunday will approach 102°.

The work week starts off mostly dry, but the humidity and heat index soar. Temperatures combined with the mugginess will feel into the 100-105 range in the afternoon through midweek. This is approaching “Heat Advisory” criteria, so make sure you stay hydrated and cool, especially if you have to spend time outdoors. Spotty rain chances return by the end of the week.
