MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - We’re looking at one final round of strong storms this afternoon but it will not be as widespread as what we saw the past couple of days.


A quick round of strong storms will move through this afternoon, likely exiting to our north by 5 PM Thursday. While the greatest threat of severe weather remains in North Carolina, we’ll be watching the threat of strong wind gusts and hail as these storms arrive. The tornado threat is lower but not completely zero.

After 5 PM, the storms move north and continue to produce severe weather in North Carolina but we’ll turn quieter. Rain chances quickly come to an end by sunset tonight.

Temperatures will fall into the upper 40s to lower 50s tonight. We will clear out and welcome sunshine back for Friday.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch was also put into effect for the entire Grand Strand and most of the Pee Dee through 7 p.m.

The cold front moves through the area tonight and ushers in much cooler weather for Friday into the weekend. Temperatures will drop into the upper 60s by Friday and into the lower to middle 60s by Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures Saturday night and Sunday morning will turn chilly with readings in the upper 30s inland to near 40 at the beaches.

Get ready for a cooler weather.
