MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - High humidity and a weak cold front will keep the risk of showers and storms in the forecast at times through the weekend.

A weak cold front will move into North Carolina on Saturday and then drop slowly into South Carolina on Sunday. The front will interact with very high humidity in place to produce off and on rounds of showers and storms at times. While the weekend will not be a washout, and there will be plenty of times of sunshine and dry weather, passing storms will possibly interfere with some outdoor plans.

SATURDAY

Saturday will see more heat and humidity continue through the day with temperatures reaching the upper 80s to lower 90s. High humidity will once again send the heat index to the 100 to 105 range at times especially from midday through the afternoon.

The high humidity will also yield a few rounds of showers and storms at times. The sea breeze may produce some storms along the Grand Strand through the afternoon, while other clusters of storms move into the Pee Dee and may linger through the evening.

Scattered showers and storms likely Saturday.

SUNDAY

On Sunday, the weak cold front will drop into the region and interact with the humidity to produce an ever better chance of showers and storms. Again, the day will not be a washout, but storms will be likely in the afternoon and evening and rain chances increase to 60%. Temperatures will be held down a bit into the lower to middle 80s on Sunday.

A cold front will  bring showers and storms on Sunday.
