MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - High pressure system will build in tomorrow bringing in near record breaking temperatures across the Pee Dee

TONIGHT

Temperatures will stay comfortable this evening. Overnight lows will cool down in the mid 60s in the Grand Strand and low 60s inland. The weather will also stay quiet with clear skies. After midnight, the winds are going to shift out from the southwest. This will bring warmer air by tomorrow.

TOMORROW

High pressure will return to the area, allowing winds to quickly shift out of the southeast through the middle of the week before the southerly winds pump in for Thursday and Friday. Highs on Wednesday will reach the mid 80s on the beaches with the lower 90s inland. Another day of sunshine will provide for not only a nice day but the humidity will begin to increase.

We get a brief break from the humidity but it quickly comes back to end the week.
