FIRST ALERT: Showers & storms this evening
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - We’re giving you the First Alert to an incoming cold front that will bring showers and storms by the evening hours today.
Showers and thunderstorms will develop across the Pee Dee by the mid afternoon and slowly move toward the Grand Strand by the evening commute and linger through the evening hours. The showers and storms will not be widespread with some areas not seeing any rain at all. The latest model guidance keeps the chance for showers and a few storms around through the early morning hours Wednesday (2-3 AM).
While severe storms are not likely, a few storms may produce some strong winds and frequent lightning with a level 1 severe storm risk in place. The rain that falls will also bring some brief relief from the pollen for those struggling with allergies this week.
REST OF THE WEEK
The cold front will move off shore late tonight allowing cooler temperatures to filter into the region. Daytime temperatures will return to the lower and middle 70s for the end of week with mostly sunny skies. We’ll see warmer temperatures as we approach the weekend. High temperatures will return in the mid to upper 70s here in the Grand Strand for Saturday and Sunday. Rain chances will stay very low, but there will a few stray pop up showers in the afternoon.
The upcoming weekend will see the temperatures returning to the upper 70s, but will also include the risk of a few showers and storms
