MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Sunny skies and low humidity continue on Friday before moisture arrives through the weekend.


Clear skies and nearly calm winds will allow temperatures to fall quickly once again overnight. The coolest temperatures will be found inland with readings in the upper 40s. Coastal areas will see temperatures dropping into the lower and middle 50s.


Friday will see another round of sunshine and comfortable afternoon temperatures. Highs will reach the lower 70s at the beach and middle 70s inland. A few more clouds will pass overhead through the afternoon and evening, but no rain is expected.

The combination of a front stalled across the Carolinas and a surge of higher humidity will lead to a risk of a few showers and storms over the weekend. On Saturday, the best risk will remain north of the region across North Carolina. Locally, there’s just a 20% chance of a stray shower or two during the day. It will be noticeably more humid and a bit warmer with temperatures in the middle and upper 70s.

Sunday will see even more warmth and humidity move into the area, and with it, a slightly better chance of showers and storms. There’s no reason to cancel any outside plans for Sunday with rain chances at 30%. The best chance of a passing shower or storm will arrive in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will climb into the upper 70s to lower 80s.
