Our last warm day, here comes the cold!

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - It’s the last warm start we will see for a while with temperatures in the mid 60s this morning. As you’re headed out the door, scattered showers and cloudy skies will continue for the morning commute. The best chances for rain are this morning until 11 AM as that cold front swings through.

Highs today will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Expect a drop into the upper 30s to lower 40s by tomorrow morning.

Today will be the last day featuring temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s for a while. Cloud cover will continue today as the front passes, before clearing skies take place tonight. You’ll notice the breezy winds today and into tomorrow due to the passage of the cold front. That will make the colder start to Friday feel even colder as you head out the door.

Highs on Friday will struggle. Despite the sunshine returning, we will only make it up into the upper 40s with a few spots attempting to hit 50°. This will make Friday the chilliest day so far this month.

Another powerful cold front will bring rain late Saturday and into Sunday morning. This will bring another cold shot of air, heading into next week.

A brief warm up will arrive over the weekend with temperatures reaching the lower 60s on both Saturday and Sunday. Skies will be mostly cloudy ahead of an even stronger cold front with another winter punch. The front will bring a few light showers by Saturday night and into the morning hours on Sunday.

Expect clouds to decrease throughout the day on Sunday, giving way to a partly cloudy afternoon. Once again, a surge of cold air will filter in behind the front with gusty winds. This cold shot of air will be even colder as we start next week.

Highs next week will struggle with temperatures only making it to the low-mid 40s.
