MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Unseasonably warm weather will continue through the last days of 2021 before a strong cold front brings an abrupt change.

Another spring-like day is on tap today as afternoon temperatures soar once again. Readings will climb into the lower 70s along the Grand Strand and into middle 70s inland.

Tonight will be clear and mild again with a few areas of fog possible. Temperatures will drop into the upper 50s to near 60.

Wednesday and Thursday will continue to see near record breaking warmth as temperatures return to the middle and upper 70s each afternoon. A few stray showers will be possible well inland on Wednesday. Another risk of a stray shower or two will exist on Thursday, but most areas will stay dry.

The New Years holiday will continue to see the unseasonably warm weather. New Year’s eve will feature plenty of warmth and a gusty breeze at times. By midnight, temperatures will only drop into the lower 60s.

New Year’s Day could see a stray shower or two, but once again, temperatures will climb well into the 70s.

Big changes start to arrive by Sunday as a strong cold front moves into the region. As the front interacts with the spring-like warmth in the area, showers and storms will become likely. With so much warmth in place along with increasing humidity, we’ll have to watch the risk of a few strong storms by late Sunday.
