MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - After a seasonable warm day across the Grand Strand and Pee Dee, the heat and humidity will start to build back in as we head into the start of our next work week. Highs tomorrow will be back in the low and middle 90s, once we factor in the humidity, it will feel closer to the 103° mark.

We also can’t totally rule out a few isolated showers and storms. It’s only a 20% chance of rain, so don’t go cancelling any plans! Just keep an eye on radar tomorrow afternoon.
