FIRST ALERT: The heat is on this weekend, with isolated storms possible

Saturday Forecast

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Another hot and steamy summer-like day is in store for us this afternoon. Highs will reach the low 90s across the Grand Strand and middle 90s for Florence and the Pee Dee. Once we factor in the humidity, feels like temperatures will be right around the triple digit mark.

Hot and humid temperatures will continue this afternoon with a 30% chance of storms.

Along with the heat, a few isolated showers and storms will be possible this afternoon. A few of these could be a bit on the strong side packing heavy rain and gusty winds. That 30% rain chance will mainly take place into this afternoon.
