MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The coverage of showers and storms will diminish on Thursday before creeping up again on Friday. More typical summer weather is on tap for the 4th of July holiday weekend.


A front that’s been stalled across the region since Monday night will dissipate on Thursday and will help to cut down on the risk of showers and storms. It will be another humid day with temperatures in the lower to middle 80s at the beach and upper 80s inland. There will be more sun than the last few days and just a slight chance of an afternoon shower or storm. Thursday’s rain chances drop to 20%.

Additional rainfall totals over the next 5 days could reach as high as 1 to 2 inches in some areas and will continue to provide relief from the drought conditions.
