MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Mostly cloudy and mild weather on Tuesday will be followed by clear and chilly weather through the end of the week. Once again, we’re watching the weather pattern closely by the end of the week.

Tonight will see fair skies turning mostly cloudy. Temperatures will drop into the upper 30s and lower 40s.

As a storm system passes to the south on Tuesday, skies will turn mostly cloudy through much of the day. Despite the clouds, the forecast will remain rain-free with all of the moisture confined to the Gulf of Mexico and well off shore. Temperatures will climb into the lower and middle 50s on Tuesday.

Colder air will return to the region for the rest of the week. Wednesday and Thursday will see afternoon temperatures only reaching the lower to middle 40s while nighttime temperatures returning to the middle and upper 20s.

The forecast for Friday and Saturday is complicated once again. Cold air will pour into the Carolinas Friday night and Saturday. At the same time, low pressure will develop off shore and then move northeast. In a pattern similar to this past Friday and Saturday the exact path and strength of the low pressure will determine what type of weather we see across the area.

If the low pressure tracks close to the coast, primarily rain will fall across the area. If the low pressure tracks further off shore, colder air will move into the region and wintry weather including snow would be possible.

If the low pressure tracks far enough off shore, then mainly dry weather would be most likely. At this point, all of the scenarios are equally possible. More details of the forecast will become more clear in the coming days.
