Dense fog this morning, one more day of rain chances

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Today is the final day of rain chances this week as the cold front moves through the Carolinas. We’ve already seen rain fall early this morning with another mild start. Temperatures will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s as you head out the door for the middle of the week.

While showers have been a big story for the Grand Strand this morning, the fog is another story we will continue to watch. Dense Fog will continue through the morning hours with multiple rain chances off and on throughout the morning. If you are inland, give yourself plenty of time for the morning commute as you head out the door.

The shower chances for this morning will become isolated and most areas will remain dry through the mid morning hours. As we head into the afternoon hours, temperatures will quickly warm into the upper 60s and lower 70s. As the cold front approaches, rain chances will become common for the afternoon and evening commute. Rain chances will range from 60% along the Grand Strand to 40% in the Pee Dee.

That cold front will move through the area later this evening and begin to usher in cooler weather to finish the week.

Temperatures will go from the upper 60s down to the lower 50s as the cold front swings through later this evening.

Temperatures will be in the lower 40s on Thursday morning and will only climb into the lower 50s by the afternoon hours. Clear skies and breezy northerly winds will allow for temperatures to drop down into the low-mid 30s on Friday morning, bringing back the frost potential for the forecast.

It's a cooler start for the weekend but a warming trend begins on Sunday and continues into the new work week.

Highs on Friday will only reach the lower 50s once again as the chilly weather will remain in place through Saturday. A warming trend looks to send temperatures back into the 60s and lower 70s by early next week.
