FIRST ALERT: Beautiful weekend on the way
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A cold front will the remaining showers and storms off shore and finally usher in much more comfortable weather for the weekend.
A cold front will continue to drop through the area and eventually off shore overnight. The front will push any left over rain out into the Atlantic and open the door for slightly cooler temperatures and lower humidity for the weekend.
Saturday will start off with the cold front well off shore and cooler temperatures moving in. Morning temperatures will range from the upper 60s at the beach to the lower to middle 60s inland. These will be the coolest morning temperatures the area has seen since late June. Afternoon temperatures will climb into the middle 80s. For the first time in a long time, the heat index WILL NOT be a factor as much lower humidity moves into the area. Skies will be mostly sunny through the day.
Sunday will see another round of sunny skies and very comfortable morning temperatures in the 60s. The afternoon will once again see temperatures climbing into the middle 80s. Lower humidity levels will continue through the day.
The break from the humidity will only last about 48 hours as it comes surging back into the region by Monday of next week. While temperatures will not be extremely hot, increasing humidity levels will give a return to the typical summertime feel. In addition, pop up showers and storms will return to the forecast starting Monday.
