FIRST ALERT: Typical Summer weather continues
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - A very typical summer-time weather pattern will remain in place through the end of the week and into the weekend.
Tonight will be warm and muggy with temperatures dropping into the middle 70s by daybreak Thursday.
High pressure parked over the Atlantic Ocean will continue to push warmth and humidity into the Carolinas from Thursday through the weekend.
Thursday will see afternoon temperatures from the upper 80s along the beach to the lower 90s inland. High humidity will push the heat index to between 95 and 100 during the afternoon. The seabreeze will help to spark off an isolated shower or storm around midday at the beaches and then later in the afternoon across the Pee Dee.
A similar pattern will result in an identical forecast for Friday with just a 30% chance of a storm or two.
By the end of the weekend, humidity will increase a bit more. The result will be a slightly better chance of pop up storms starting on Sunday and continuing into early next week. Rain chances will increase to 40% with temperatures steady in the 80s to lower 90s.
