MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - This 4th of July holiday will feature plenty of heat and humidity along with the risk of a few storms in spots.


We had plenty of lightning and rain from the storms this past afternoon. The storms did cancel some 4th of July plans like going to beach and see the “Salute from the shore” was cancelled because of he storms. On the bright side, we are going to see lower rain chances for those who want to watch the fireworks. Seasonably hot and humid weather will linger today along with the risk of passing storms at times.

We’ll continue to stay warm and muggy this evening with temperatures in the low 80s. Storms will tend to diminish with the sunset and most fireworks displays will go on without any worries for storms, but with plenty of lingering humidity.

Muggy but a low risk of a storm.

Typical summer weather will continue for the rest of the week although with bouts of unsettled weather as chances of mainly afternoon and evening storms continues. Daytime temperatures will reach the upper 80s and lower 90s with the heat index around 100 to 105 most days.

Pop up storms will be likely at times, but no day is looking like a washout.
