MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - The risk of severe storms has decreased across the area, but gusty showers will continue throughout the middle of the day as the cold front passes through the area.

Relatively cool and stable air has remained in place across the area. This cool, stable air has kept any severe weather threat well south of the area through South Carolina Low Country and into coastal sections of Georgia.

Clearing skies will work back into the area this afternoon and we should be partly cloudy by this evening, providing for plenty of sunshine for both Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will reach the mid-upper 70s Tuesday before the cold front Tuesday night brings us down into the upper 60s on Wednesday.

The storms work back into the forecast Thursday with a few strong storms possible. There is still a lot of time to iron out the details.

Our attention will soon turn to storms that arrive on Thursday ahead of a cold front. That system will bring the potential for some stronger storms but the details right now are limited. The more data we get, the better we will understand the chances for strong or even possibly severe weather come Thursday evening.
