MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - A warming trend will start on Friday and send temperatures to near record levels by Saturday.

Tonight will see fair skies and a few areas of fog developing. Temperatures will drop into the middle and upper 40s near the beach and to near 40 inland.

Milder weather will return on Friday as southerly winds begin to develop. Temperatures will climb into the lower and middle 60s by the afternoon. Skies will be mostly cloudy at times through the day with just a 20% chance of a sprinkle across the Pee Dee.

Off and showers will linger through the early morning hours of Sunday before the front pushes off shore. Much cooler weather will filter in behind the front - this will result in Sunday’s high temperatures near 60 likely being reached around sunrise on Sunday and then falling into the 50s through the afternoon.
