MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A hot, humid, and steamy weekend is on the way across the Grand Strand and Pee Dee.

Today looks to stay mostly dry, with mostly sunny skies taking shape throughout this afternoon. While we’re expecting to stay dry, that doesn’t mean humidity won’t be a factor. Temperatures will warm into the low 90s for both the Grand Strand and Pee Dee.

Once we factor in the mugginess, today’s feels like temperatures will be well into the upper 90s across the beaches and potentially into the triple digit range for the Pee Dee. This hot and humid trend doesn’t show any signs of letting up throughout the rest of the weekend and even into the next several days.

Feels like temperatures will be approaching the triple digit range into next week.
