MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - High heat will give way to high humidity this weekend along with increasing chances of a pop up storm or two in some areas.

The worst of the heat is behind us for now. While the temperatures will start to drop, humidity will increase through the weekend and stay high into next week gicing a daily risk of showers and storms.


Saturday will start off mild and muggy with morning temperatures in the lower to middle 70s. Temperatures will climb, but will not be as hot as the last few days. Along the Grand Strand, the sea breeze will keep temperatures capped in the middle 80s while inland areas climb to near 90. With increasing humidity and a more active sea breeze, there will be a 30% chance of a few pop up showers and storms by the afternoon and evening.
