MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Hot, humid and rain-free weather will continue through Sunday and into early next week.

High pressure will remain parked nearly overhead through the the first half of next week. The result will be a rain-free forecast with lingering heat and humidity.

Tonight will be warm and humid with temperatures dropping into the middle to upper 70s.

High temperatures on Sunday will reach the upper 80s along the Grand Strand and lower 90s inland. The heat index will climb as high as 97-101° during the afternoon. If you have outdoor plans, stay hydrated. Despite the high humidity, no showers or storms are expected.

The first part of next week will bring a bit of a heat wave with even warmer temperatures for Monday-Wednesday. Highs will climb into the 90s on the beach and the middle 90s inland! With a bit more humidity, the heat index may reach as high as 105 at times.

The forecast remains dry through most of the early part of the week before a few showers and storms return by the middle and end of the week.
