MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - We continue the new year with a soggy forecast as we head into the weekend. Scattered showers are working back into the forecast this evening as a cold front will begin to move through the Pee Dee before stalling out around the beaches. Rain chances tonight will remain at 80% with overnight lows happening early. We will see warmer weather throughout the night and into Saturday.
We will hold onto the chance of heavy rain and a few gusty winds tonight with any showers that move through. This first round of rain should begin to end by tomorrow morning before another low pressure system slides into the Carolinas, bringing a second round of showers for Saturday night and into Sunday morning. Highs for Saturday will remain warm with temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s as rain chances increase throughout the day.
We will see a 70% chance of showers Saturday afternoon through the overnight hours into Sunday morning. By the time you wake up on Sunday, we are still dealing with cloud cover and rain chances through the first half of the day. Highs on Sunday will be in the low-mid 60s with clouds trying to break up throughout the day. It will be a close call but a few peeks of sunshine will be possible for the second half of the day.
If anything, we will be dry for Sunday afternoon and continue that drying trend into the new work week. Highs on Monday and Tuesday will be back into the seasonable range with readings in the mid-upper 50s.
