FIRST ALERT: Steamy 100° heat index returns soon

Sean's Sunday Evening Forecast

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Folks along the Grand Strand were able to squeeze in some rainy relief this afternoon, but we won’t be lucky enough to escape the heat and humidity heading into the work week.

Monday and Tuesday will remain dry, but all eyes are on the thermometer and heat index. Temperatures will feel into the 90s Monday afternoon, so not terrible. It’s Tuesday and Wednesday that we climb above the 100° mark, and even as high as 110° by Wednesday afternoon.

WHEN RELIEF ARRIVES: An approaching cold front is expected to arrive late Wednesday night with scattered showers and storms. Most of Wednesday looks dry but the evening hours could feature a little bit more shower and storm activity. That cold front looks to get stalled out over the Carolinas, keeping the daily rain chances at 30% for Thursday, Friday and even into portions of the weekend. Temperatures will be cooler and the humidity will drop offering a break from the summer heat for a couple days.
