MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Cold front brings a broken line of storms this evening. The front will give us a brief break from the humidity tomorrow.

TONIGHT

An approaching cold front will move into the region this afternoon and into the evening hours. This will provide just enough lift for a line of showers and storms to form through the early evening hours and through tonight. The severe weather threat remains at a level one risk with the threat of some damaging winds and heavy rainfall.

The storms will arrive between 6 to 10 this evening

It’s important to note that this will not all-day rain and will not be a severe weather maker. If anything, an isolated warning cannot be ruled out. While the rain is nice, it won’t be enough to end the drought conditions and that cold front won’t bring much of a cool down.

REST OF THE WEEK

Highs will fall just a couple of degrees on Tuesday. We’re still warm for this time of year and get a day to enjoy a little bit of a break before the heat and humidity ramps up mid to late week. Southwest winds will continue to pump in warm and moist area across our area this week. Highs will climb into the mid-upper 80s again by Wednesday on the beaches with the 90s returning for inland areas.

Highs will climb into the mid-upper 80s through the week with the middle 90s inland.

We remain dry through the work week with our next brief chance of rain arriving for the weekend. Even then, it’s not enough to cancel weekend plans.
