FIRST ALERT: Hazy, hot and humid through the weekend
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Hazy, hot and humid weather will continue through the weekend.
Smoke from large wildfires burning across the western US will continue to ride the jet stream winds across the country. The result will be hazy skies at times through the weekend. The smoke will also likely make for more vibrant red and orange sunrises and sunsets.
Tonight will be warm and muggy with temperatures dropping into the lower to middle 70s.
Saturday will see hazy sunshine through the day with plenty of high humidity. Afternoon temperatures will climb to near 90 with the heat index nearing 100.
Hot and humid weather will continue through Sunday with a rain-free forecast. Temperatures will once again climb to near 90 with the heat index around 100.
Humidity will increase further next week and allow for showers and storms to increase once again. The best chances will likely arrive by Tuesday and Wednesday. Heat will continue to build as well with lower to middle 90s likely by the middle and end of next week.
