FIRST ALERT: Heat Advisory continues Friday followed by a few weekend storms
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A HEAT ADVISORY is in effect once again for Friday as the heat index levels will approach the dangerous levels from 12 PM to 8 PM.
Blazing summertime heat and humidity will continue across the area on Friday with another heat advisory in place through the day. The Grand Strand will see afternoon temperatures climb into the lower 90s while inland areas climb into the middle and upper 90s. The high humidity will send the heat index to 105 to 108. A stray shower or storm will be possible by the late afternoon especially across the Pee Dee, however the risk of a storm is only 20%.
A few subtle changes arrive for the weekend as a very weak cold front drops into North Carolina. While the front will never make as far south as our area, it will get close enough to enhance the risk of a few showers and storms at times over the weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday afternoons will have a 30% chance of a pop up storm or two that will provide a brief break from the excessive heat.
High temperatures will return to the lower to middle 90s on Saturday with a heat index near 105 through the day. Sunday will see a bit more cloud cover that will help to hold temperatures down a degree or two for afternoon temperatures near 90 at the beach and the lower 90s inland.
