You will need the jackets as you head out the door this morning. Along with temperatures in the mid-40s, we have some patchy dense fog, especially along areas of I-95 and north. Keep this in mind as you head out the door this morning.

Highs will still be held in check by the cloud cover. Look for highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

By this afternoon, highs will be held in check by the cloud cover and northerly winds once again. Look for highs today to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s. A stray shower or two cannot be ruled out for today but the chances look very isolated.

Sunshine will return by Wednesday and Thursday, providing for some sunny and fall-like days in both Florence and Myrtle Beach. Afternoon highs will bump back into the lower 60s while the mornings will remain chilly.

Our next system brings rain chances late Saturday and into the overnight hours.

Clouds will increase throughout the day on Friday and Saturday but high temperatures will still top out around 70°. Rain chances look to remain north on Friday but the chances will arrive late on Saturday. Some of this rain will be heavy at times late Saturday.
