FIRST ALERT: Drier tonight before rain chances return Sunday

Sean's Saturday Evening Update

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - After a soggy start Saturday, another bout of scattered showers arrives Sunday afternoon.

Tonight expect lingering areas of light rain and drizzle. Rain chances are spotty at best, only about 20%, so not enough to reschedule or impact any of your outdoor plans. Temperatures will be a bit cooler, mostly hovering in the middle to low 70s.

Sunday morning starts off dry, and it stays that way until about 3PM. Scattered storms and showers approach the Pee Dee after 3PM and a few could make their way to the Grand Strand by 5-6PM. Either way, these storms are “splash and dash,” and will only last maybe 20-30 minutes. Expect temperature to rise a bit more Sunday afternoon, reaching 91 inland and 87 at the beaches. Scattered storms and showers continue through Sunday night, though no severe weather is expected.

Monday sees the shower chances slowly rise through the morning, and peak into the afternoon. Again the storm threat is low, but periods of heavy rain are possible. Temperatures may be a touch cooler in the middle to upper 80s for highs. Rain chances go down and temperatures go up through next week. Storms come back into the forecast as we get closer to the weekend.

TROPICS: As of the Saturday evening update, the area we were watching near the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean maintains only a 20%, of formation. Good news to hear, especially as we enter the height of hurricane season over the next month.

The next five days look to feature warmer temperatures with more sunshine. Rain chances continue through Tuesday.
