MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Temperatures will remain mild to end the week before a slight cool down for the weekend.

After a cool start to the week, warmer weather will continue to move in for the finish. Thursday and Friday will see temperatures increasing a bit more each day with the upper 70s to near 80 on the beaches and the lower 80s inland.

The only rain chance through the weekend arrives on Friday with a weak cold front that moves into the area. This will bring a few more clouds and just a slight chance of a sprinkle or light shower especially Friday afternoon and evening.

The weak front moves off shore Friday night and allows slightly cooler weather to arrive for the upcoming weekend. The latest front will not be nearly as the strong front this past weekend. As a result, afternoon temperatures on Saturday and Sunday only drop into middle 70s. A great weekend for any outdoor plans!

Just a sprinkle or brief shower is possible on Friday.

Rainfall deficits across the area are running 4 to 7 inches below normal since September 1st. No real rain chances are in the forecast through the weekend, but models are starting to hint at the chance of some slightly higher rain chances at times next week.
