MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - While the rain chances remain slim this weekend, some much-needed rain returns to the forecast soon.

A cold front will make its way through the Carolinas tonight, ushering in some cooler weather for the weekend. Afternoon highs turn around 10° cooler Saturday as we top out in the lower 70s under sunny skies.

Any drop is brief as we already begin to warm up again into Sunday. Afternoon highs will return to the upper 70s to near 80° with a few more clouds around.
