FIRST ALERT: Stormy at times through the weekend

Sean's Friday Evening Forecast

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Tropical moisture ramps up the humidity and scattered storm chances into the weekend.

Scattered storms continue pushing onshore through the evening. The night won’t be a washout, but do be aware of the chance for a storm during your dinner or nighttime plans. Mugginess stays put as tropical moisture settles in.

Even more tropical moisture makes its way into our area Saturday, helping boost the rain chances for the weekend. The rain may get an early start Saturday, especially along the Grand Strand. This means as early as sunrise Saturday, expect to see some rain around. Thunderstorms could produce heavy rain at times. We may catch a break around lunchtime before more showers and storms form into the afternoon and evening. Thanks to the added cloud cover, temperatures will be held down into the 80s.

Sunday features another round of storms, primarily focused into the afternoon hours. A few more breaks in the clouds will send temperatures back into the 90s with a heat index in the upper 90s.

Next week will see showers and storms developing in spots during the afternoon and evening, but rain chances will gradually trend downward.
