FIRST ALERT: First day of Fall on Monday is followed by summer heat
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - After a calm and comfortable weekend, we see signs of summer sneaking back in by later this week.
Tonight we see clear skies and temperatures still comfortable in the 70s. By Monday morning, we will wake up to temperatures in the middle 60s, so just a touch warmer than the past few mornings. Autumn technically begins Monday at 3:50 A.M.
The rest of the week will feature dry skies, with just a small chance of an isolated shower Wednesday afternoon. Humidity slowly starts to increase through the week, feeling especially more muggy and noticeable by Thursday and Friday. No signs of any changes into next weekend, as dry skies continue.
TROPICS: As of Sunday Evening, we continue to watch 2 tropical storms, Jerry and Karen, as well as possible development off the coast of West Africa. Jerry continues its track towards Bermuda as a tropical storm arriving by Tuesday. Newly formed Karen moves due north, and sets its sights on Puerto Rico and the US and British Virgin Islands as tropical storm watches are up for those areas through midweek.
The possible development off the coast of Africa has a 90% chance of formation over the next few days, and if development continues, it would be a tropical depression or possibly Tropical Storm Lorenzo. It still has a long trek across the Atlantic before we can tell where it’ll end up.
