MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - The warm and humid weather pattern continues as we begin your Tuesday. A Dense Fog Advisory is out once again for the areas along the Grand Strand this morning.

While the fog threat will not be as widespread across the Pee Dee and Grand Strand, it will still cause a few slow downs in those spots it does impact this morning. Keep that in mind as you head out the door.

Look for another repeat day on Wednesday with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the lower 70s. A few more showers will be possible throughout the afternoon hours and into the evening.

A brief warm up will return for the start of the weekend with a few more showers and storms ahead of another cold front. That cold front will bring breezy winds and mostly cloudy skies for Saturday.
