MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A nasty start to the work week with clouds and rain. However, we’re expecting drier weather ahead.


A stationary front brought a gloomy start to the work week. The on and off rain will stick around through dinnertime. But I wouldn’t rule a few lingering showers later this evening. But after sunset, rain chances will wrap up for the night.

As the low pressure system moves to the northeast, majority of the moisture will be pulled away from the Carolinas, resulting in just a few scattered showers and storms both Tuesday and Wednesday. Rain chances are at 40% with the middle 80s for highs on Tuesday. While it’s not a washout, a traditional pattern of partly cloudy skies early will be accompanied by rain chances Tuesday afternoon. Not everyone will see the rain.

An approaching cold front on Wednesday will slide through the region Wednesday night. The front will bring a 30% chance of showers and storms with highs in the upper 80s for both the beaches and inland areas. Wednesday will not be a washout but scattered showers and storms are expected along the front, mainly in the afternoon hours.


The end of the week features drier air for Thursday & Friday. Rain chances fall to 0% for Thursday before a few scattered showers return for Friday afternoon. Highs will fall into the mid 80s for the weekend with rain chances at 20-30% for the weekend forecast.

Highs will climb into the mid-upper 80s before the cold front moves in on Wednesday.
