FIRST ALERT: Unsettled pattern continues with daily storm chances

Unsettled pattern continues with daily storm chances

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - A few of you might have woken up early this morning to overnight showers and storms this morning. The good news? We are drying out and will continue to look at a hot and humid forecast for today.

Highs today will warm up into the lower 90s for both the beaches and inland. Heat index values will make a run for the upper 90s again today, with a few locations reaching the triple digits. Once again, with enough energy, a few storms will develop ahead of the disturbance this afternoon. Storm chances today are at 30% and not everyone will see the showers/storms.

This afternoon, showers and storms will return at 30%. A strong storm or two cannot be ruled out with the energy from the heat we pick up today.

There looks to be slightly better ingredients for the storms just to our southwest into the Lowcountry but this is something that can easily change. We will keep an eye on the radar this afternoon as storms begin to fire to our northwest. Expect those storms to quickly track to the southeast and impact part of the Pee Dee and Grand Strand this afternoon and evening.

Rain chances continue each day this week with the models trying to show a drier trend for the end of the week.

Our rain chances do not end anytime soon. Afternoon showers and storms continue through the week with the heating providing for scattered activity Tuesday-Sunday. The confidence in the forecast for the end of the week is on the lower end for now. Models continue to flip back and forth between a drier pattern and a scattered storm setup. For now, rain chances remain at 20% Friday-Sunday with hopefully a better understanding by the middle of the week. Highs will remain in the mid-upper 80s through the work week for the beaches with the lower 90s inland.

So far, so good. We will hold onto a few rain chances for those weekend plans.
