MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - I hope you enjoyed the nice break from the heat because it will be back by tomorrow.

TONIGHT

The cloud skies that we saw this morning will linger early this evening. By tonight the clouds will slowly clear through the night, leaving us with mostly clear skies for tomorrow morning. Overnight lows are going to remain mild near 70 degrees in the Grand Strand and upper 60s inland.

HEAT WAVE RETURNS TOMORROW

We’re forecasting Wednesday to be the hottest day of the week with the humidity making it feel even worse. Highs on Wednesday will reach 90° on the beaches. Inland will make a run at the triple digits. The heat index will range from 100-105° starting Wednesday and continue through the end of the week. The only difference on Thursday and Friday? We’ll add in a few isolated shower and storm chances. Widespread rain through the weekend looks unlikely. Expect at least scattered downpours for both Thursday and Friday with highs in the upper 80s on the beaches and the upper 90s inland.

WEEKEND FORECAST

As we head into the weekend, we’ll turn a bit cooler as more clouds begin to sneak in, especially by Sunday. Highs will reach the mid 80s for the beaches this weekend. Highs inland will reach the low-mid 90s. We’ll keep the rain chances isolated through the weekend forecast.
