MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Summertime heat and humidity will stick around through most of the week with the risk of passing downpours at times.

Wednesday will see another round of heat and humidity with temperatures reaching the middle to upper 80s at the beach and upper 80s to near 90 inland. With the high humidity in place, a few pop up showers and storms are likely with the highest chances across the Pee Dee.

By Thursday, a cold front will begin to approach the area and give a slightly better chance of showers and storms through the day. Ahead of the front, southerly winds will keep the warmth and humidity in place with temperatures again in the middle to upper 80s.

The cold front moves through the area on Thursday, bringing drier air behind it.

The front will push off shore by Friday morning and will help to usher in cooler temperatures and lower humidity. Friday and Saturday will see temperatures in the lower 80s during the day and well down into the 60s at night.
