MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The rain is gone, but the impacts of the cold front will continue with cooler air and gusty winds through the rest of the weekend.

Gradually clearing skies take over tonight, leaving us with rapidly cooling temperatures. You’ll wake up Sunday to temperatures in the low 40s along the coast and upper 30s inland. The breeze will still be felt, with winds shifting out of the north at 10-20 MPH. Highs Sunday will reach into the middle to low 50s.

A bounce back to milder air slowly takes shape Monday and Tuesday. After cool mornings in the low 40s, look for temperatures to reach near 60 under mostly sunny skies. Our next chance for rain is Tuesday night, followed by another round of cooler and clearer skies midweek.
