As the sun rises, we will be greeted with plenty of sunshine and temperatures warming up throughout the day. Winds will be breezy at times today as sunshine allows highs to climb into the low-mid 60s today.

Until our next weather maker, we have a nice stretch of weather ahead of us.

Winds will increase out of the south by Wednesday and Thursday, allowing temperatures to warm up for the afternoons. Highs in the Pee Dee will make a run for the upper 60s on Wednesday and the mid-upper 60s on Thursday. Here along the beaches, we will see plenty of sunshine with highs in the low-mid 60s. It’s a nice and much needed trend across the area, especially with those high river levels.

Rain chances increase on Friday to 30% for the beaches and 40% for the Pee Dee.
