MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Turn the A/C this week because you’ll need it. It’s going to feel a lot like summer this week.


We’ll continue to be quiet with partly cloudy skies. However, after midnight, patchy fog will move in once again through Monday morning. Temperatures are going to drop down in the mid to upper 60s. If you want to see something cool tonight, we have a lunar eclipse tonight. It begins at 10:30 tonight, totality will between 11:30pm to 1am, and the eclipse will end at 2am.

We start the day with patchy fog early in the morning. Once the sun rises, this will help break apart the fog later that morning. It’s going to be another warm and humid day in the Pee Dee. Highs will be in the low 80s in the Grand Strand and near 90 degrees inland. We’ll see mostly sunny skies with dry conditions. However, a weak cold front will bring chances for scattered showers and storms Monday night. So far, we are not expecting any significant severe weather with that storm.


Southwest winds will continue to funnel in warm and moist area across our this week. Tuesday, we’ll have mostly sunny skies with high in the low 80s in the Grand Strand and near 90 degrees inland. We’ll stay in the mid 80 in the Grand Strand throughout the work week and inland temperatures will slowly warm up in the mid 90s by the end the work week. Climate models are expecting these above normal temperatures to last throughout the month of May.
