FIRST ALERT: Scattered storms then humidity relief
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - An approaching cold front will spark off scattered showers and storms on Thursday followed by lower humidity and cooler temperatures to end the week.
A few showers and storms will remain possible at times through the late evening with just a slight chance of a lingering shower or storm overnight. Temperatures will be quite warm - only dropping into the middle 70s.
By Thursday, a cold front will begin to approach the area and provide a continued chance of scattered 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. Rain chances on Thursday will increase to 60% with the best chance of showers and storms arriving in the late afternoon and evening.
By Thursday night, the cold front will push off shore and open the door for cooler and less humid weather to move in.
Friday will start off with temperatures in the middle to upper 60s. By the afternoon, temperatures will reach the lower 80s with much lower humidity and a comfortable northeast wind.
The pleasant weather will continue through Saturday and Saturday night with a warm up once again on the way by Sunday into early next week.
