MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - The lower humidity and comfortable temperatures of the last few days will be replaced by increasing humidity and the risk of pop up showers and storms at times.

Tonight will see humidity gradually increasing especially near sunrise. Temperatures tonight will drop into the middle to upper 70s.

As a surge of high humidity and moisture moves in from the Atlantic on Friday, humidity levels will shoot up and rain chances will increase. The best chance of passing showers and a few storms will be through the first half of the day along the beaches where downpours could start as early as sunrise. By the afternoon, coastal rain chances will start to drop and shift further inland. Temperatures will climb into the lower to middle 80s.
