MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - An active and changeable weather pattern will keep temperatures climbing and dropping over the next week.

Tonight will start off clear with temperatures quickly dropping into the upper 30s and lower 40s. Later tonight, an onshore wind will develop and will help to bring more moisture on shore. As a result, skies will turn mostly cloudy with a few sprinkles or areas of drizzle possible after midnight and through daybreak Wednesday.
