FIRST ALERT: Steamy streak of summer heat continues

Sean's Sunday Forecast

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - No relief from the oppressive humidity as summer heat has a strong hold on our temperatures for the next several days.

Tonight, even through sunset, the mugginess will continue as the heat index will still feel into the 90s. No rain chances this evening, but we can’t completely rule out an isolated shower overnight.

Sunday features more intense heat. The morning starts off with temperatures near 90 along the coast and upper 90s inland. The afternoon will feel above 100 again thanks to the heat index. Isolated storms are possible in the afternoon, but the entire latter half of the day won’t be a washout.

Even hotter weather will arrive by early next week. Readings may reach as hot as 100 in some inland areas Monday and Tuesday afternoon and evening. Lower and middle 90s are expected for the beaches. With higher temperatures and humidity levels also creeping higher, the heat index will climb above 105 at times and may reach as high as 110. Once again heat advisories may be issued for parts of the area. Despite the high humidity, the forecast will remain rain free through the early part of next week.

Staying muggy and miserable through the middle of the week.

Relief will finally arrive starting next Wednesday as showers and storms start to increase. The added clouds and wet weather at times Wednesday through Friday will help to drop temperatures back into the 80s to near 90.
