FIRST ALERT: Near record warmth ahead of weekend cold front
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Temperatures will remain unseasonably warm through Saturday before a strong cold front ushers in the coolest weather so far this season.
Tonight will be clear and mild with temperatures dropping into the lower to middle 60s.
Friday will see another round of near record warmth. With sunny skies, temperatures will soar into the lower 80s at the beach and middle to upper 80s inland.
Saturday will see one final day of near record high temperatures as afternoon readings return to the middle to upper 80s. However, big changes will start to arrive late in the day.
A strong cold front will enter the region around sunset on Saturday. Ahead of the front, a few fast moving showers will be likely but will likely only last an hour or less in most locations. The cold front will quickly push the showers off shore and allow much cooler weather to blow in for Sunday.
Sunday morning will see temperatures in the upper 40s to lower 50s with clear skies and a gusty breeze. By the afternoon, temperatures will struggle to climb out of the upper 60s to near 70.
The coolest night so far this season will arrive by Sunday night with temperatures well down into the 40s to near 50.
