MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Plenty of humidity through the work week and just enough moisture and ingredients for daily shower and storm chances. That’s the name of the game for the week ahead, with some days featuring slightly better rain chances than others.


Scattered showers will begin to wrap after sunset. The weather is going to stay relatively quiet tonight with partly cloudy skies. Overnight lows are going to remain mild in the mid 70s across the Pee Dee


For your Tuesday morning’s commute, the weather is going to be pleasant with partly cloudy skies. It’s going to be a hot and humid day. High temperatures are going to reach near 90 degrees in the Grand Strand and low 90s inland. With the humidity though, it’s going to feel like 100 degrees across the Pee Dee. Rain chances will remain low but will have another chance for pop up storms in the afternoon.

We’re warmer by a couple of degrees compared to where we should be for this time of year through the middle of the week. Highs will climb into the lower 90s on both the beaches and inland areas. The best chance for showers and storms will be mainly on Tuesday with a quick-moving disturbance bringing a little bit better ingredients for some lift & afternoon storms.

Here's a look at the forecast into the middle of the week.

Rain chances remain at 30% for Tuesday before we drop them to 20% for Wednesday. While Wednesday looks to be drier, it also is shaping up to be one of the warmest days with feels like temperatures in the triple digits. Hello, humidity!

An incoming cold front will move into the Carolinas on Thursday but looks to stall out before even making it to our area. Regardless, our best rain chance from this weakening front will come on Friday with just a 30% chance of showers and storms. Highs will remain in the upper 80s to lower 90s through the end of the week. That humidity doesn’t go anywhere anytime soon.

Highs for the weekend look to remain warm with just a 20% chance of a shower each afternoon.
