FIRST ALERT: Easter weekend showers & storms
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Showers and storms are likely on Saturday with a bit of drying trend just in time for Easter Sunday.
Skies will clear overnight with temperatures dropping into the lower 50s inland and middle to upper 50s along the coast.
Saturday will be a mostly cloudy day. It will be dry through the morning, but a round of showers and storms is likely from midday through the afternoon. No severe weather is expected, but some rumbles of thunder are likely along with some briefly heavy downpours at times.
Despite the cloudy skies, temperatures will warm into lower to middle 70s.
The forecast is improving for Easter Sunday. A mix of sun and clouds will continue through the day with just a small risk of a lingering shower or two. The best chance for rain will arrive near sunset on Sunday, keeping those sunrise services dry and partly cloudy for the early morning hours. Highs on Sunday will reach the low-mid 70s.
A better risk of widespread rain arrives Sunday night and into Monday. Widespread rain and cloud cover looks likely by Monday to start off the work week. This will not only increase our rain chances but decrease the temperatures through the middle of the week. Temperatures will remain in the middle 60s through next Wednesday.
