MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - The risk of showers and storms will remain high through Tuesday before a subtle drying trend to end the week.

A weak cold front along with abundant moisture will continue to support numerous showers and storms at times through Tuesday evening. Some of the rain could be very heavy at times and lead to areas of minor flooding.

Tonight will see showers and storms especially in the mid to late evening hours. Temperatures will only drop into the middle 70s with very high humidity.

With the front and moisture lingering across the area, Tuesday will see another round of downpours at times and once again some could be heavy. Rain chances Tuesday are at 60%. Afternoon temperatures will climb into the middle 80s.

Slightly drier air will move into the upper levels of the atmosphere starting on Wednesday. This drier air will help to limit the amount of showers and storms. However, very high humidity will remain in the lower levels of the atmosphere and will support just a few isolated storms each afternoon.
