MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Plenty of humidity lingers around with another round of showers and storms later today.

TODAY

A stalled out front will provide another round of warm & humid conditions today. The timing of the showers will be between 3pm to 10pm. The Grand Strand has the better chance of seeing rain today compared to our inland areas. The risk for severe weather is very low, however, I cannot rule out a strong isolated storm or two. The main threats are gusty winds, small hail, and heavy downpours.

While another chance of a strong storm or two cannot be ruled out, better ingredients for a strong storm look to be up near Cape Fear and across North Carolina. Even then, it’s just a LEVEL 1 severe weather risk or a very low chance for severe weather.

TOMORROW

Temperatures will fall into the mid-upper 60s tonight, providing for a comfortable start to the day on Wednesday. An area of high pressure will be situated just offshore but our next system will already start to push in from the west across the Mississippi. Highs will stay in the lower 80s for Wednesday with the middle 80s inland. That area of high pressure should keep rain chances limited for both tomorrow and Thursday. Rain chances are at 20% for both days with temperatures remaining pretty steady.

Highs will be slightly cooler tomorrow with an isolated shower chance at 20%.

FRIDAY’S COLD FRONT

An incoming system across the plains will move toward the Carolinas over the next couple of days. This chance of rain looks promising, especially for our area under drought conditions. We still want to keep an eye on the latest data over the next few days. For now, models are consistent on showers and storms becoming pretty common by Friday. Timing is still being worked out but we have bumped rain chances up to 60% on Friday. The timing of the cold front will dictate the holiday weekend. As of right now, we have Saturday dry with an isolated shower chance both Sunday and Monday.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

Thanks to that cold front, we’re expecting drier weather for your Memorial Day Weekend. Saturday will be less humid, which means are rain chances are going to be very low. We’re forecasting mostly sunny skies with highs in the low 80s. But, the humidity will be making its return on Sunday, which will give us a chance for a stray pop up shower. Overall, it’s going to be a warm, dry, and humid holiday weekend ahead!
