MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - We’re building the humidity with southwest winds & keeping storm chances around for the afternoon hours. Have plans today? Be prepared for a few showers and storms. It will not be as active as what we saw on Monday.

TONIGHT

Scattered showers and storms will stick around dinner but after sunset, storms chances are going to diminish. For the rest of the evening, we’ll stay quiet with mostly clear skies. Temperatures are going to stay mild in the mid to upper 70s across the Pee Dee.

As we said yesterday, don’t cancel any plans for today! It’s still going to be a great day for the beach or pool if that is what your plans include.

REST OF THE WEEK

Southwesterly winds will continue with high heat and humidity through the weekend. It will feel like 100-105° each afternoon with actual temperatures ranging from the upper 80s on the beaches to the low-mid 90s inland. Rain chances will remain at 30% for Wednesday.

Highs remain warm with temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s through the work week.

Friday will feature another round of slightly better rain chances with a 30% chance of showers and storms as a cold front remains weak and stalled out to the north of our area. This won’t bring any “colder” air but will bring another round of scattered showers and storms by Friday.

Our next front falls apart as the cold front stalls out to the northwest for Friday.
