FIRST ALERT: A few more days of summer heat, before relief arrives

Sean's Sunday Evening Forecast

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Humidity will still be high for the start of the work week, but signs of feeling more fall-like arrive by the middle of the week.

Tonight we have partly cloudy skies and warm temperatures into tomorrow morning. As you get started Monday morning, expect temperatures to be in the middle 70s with dry skies. Patchy fog is possible inland.

No significant rain chances are expected over the next 7 days, but we will still feel the moisture in the air Monday and Tuesday as humidity stays sticky. High temperatures reach into the middle and upper 80s, but it will feel closer to 90 both days. Tuesday night a game-changer arrives in the form of a cold front. While the cold front only brings in a small overnight rain chance, it’s the fall-like air that comes in behind it starting Wednesday.

Wednesday and Thursday highs will struggle to get to 80, and it will feel fantastic as humidity is all pushed offshore.

Speaking of offshore, that will be where Tropical Storm Humberto will be as the track makes the easterly turn tonight. It is expected to become a hurricane by tonight or tomorrow. The only impacts we will encounter here will be coastal, mainly with an increased rip current risk and higher swells and waves at times. As for the rest of the tropics, there’s only one other area of interest in the central Atlantic. It has a good chance of becoming a tropical depression or storm in the coming days, but still too early to see about any land impacts.
