FIRST ALERT: Muggy with a few weekend downpours
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Summertime humidity will linger through the weekend with a few showers and storms at times.
Moisture will continue to stream into the area from the Atlantic resulting in high humidity, periods of clouds and the risk of passing showers and a few storms.
A few downpours will be possible tonight especially near the beaches. Temperatures will drop into the upper 60s well inland to the lower 70s along the coast.
Saturday will start off with a good chance of showers and storms along the Grand Strand through the first half of the day. As the seabreeze pushes inland by the afternoon, the better risk of downpours will also shift inland. Temperatures will climb into the lower to middle 80s by the afternoon.
The upper levels of the atmosphere dry out just enough for a reduction in rain chances for Sunday. Despite lingering high humidity, the risk of a shower drops to just 20%. Temperatures will once again return to the middle 80s.
