MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Another round of disturbed weather arrives this week with the threat of heavy rain.
The clouds continue to filter-in Tuesday while rain chances remain low. We’ll likely see a few showers and storms develop later in the day with better rain chances into Wednesday.
Heavy rain and downpours begin to move in around sunrise Wednesday and likely increase in coverage through the day. It’s due to a storm system arriving from our south that will pump the tropical moisture in. The National Hurricane Center only gives this system a 20% chance of developing into something with tropical characteristics, but none-the-less, heavy rain looks likely.
The downpours will be efficient rainmakers with most spots approaching 1″ to 2″ through Thursday morning.
While the severe weather threat is low, some gusty winds are likely Wednesday. Wind gusts could approach 30 mph at times, stronger when the heavy rain moves through.
The heavy rain threat begins to exit Thursday but the afternoon storm chances continue. We’ll likely see scattered afternoon storms Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. We’ll turn muggy with heat indices begin climbing into the 90s.
