FIRST ALERT: Heading into the weekend with a typical summer pattern
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The dog days of summer continue this weekend although the daily risk of storms will gradually start to diminish.
Typical summer weather will continue this weekend with temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s and the heat index near or over 100 both Saturday and Sunday. A few lingering storms will be possible on Saturday with the rain chances remaining at 30%.
By Sunday, the upper levels of the atmosphere will be drier, dropping our rain chances to just 20% with most areas remaining dry. The rip current risk will be lower for the weekend if you plan to head out to the beach for either Saturday or Sunday.
High pressure will build over the area next week resulting in a drier weather pattern but increasing heat and very high humidity. By the middle and end of next week, temperatures will climb all the way into the lower to middle 90s with some inland areas in the upper 90s. With very high humidity, the heat index will likely return to dangerous levels of 105 or higher.
