MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - A cold front will usher in cooler temperatures to finish this week.

Skies will be mostly cloudy at times through tonight as a cold front works it way through the area. A few clouds may linger for the start of the lunar eclipse tonight, but enough breaks should be present by the peak at 4:00 A.M. for a good view. Temperatures by Friday morning will drop into the middle 40s well inland and to near 50 along the Grand Strand.

The weekend will feature plenty of sunshine and moderating temperatures. After a chilly start to the day, Saturday’s highs will climb into the lower 60s. The warming trend continues on Sunday with afternoon temperatures in the upper 60s.
