MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - You don’t have to cancel any holiday plans this weekend because we’re expecting drier conditions for the next few days.


We’re expecting great racing weather tonight for the Southern 500. We’ll have partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the low 80s to start the race. By the last lap, temperatures are going to fall in the mid 70s. Overnight lows will continue to drop in the low to mid 70s across the Pee Dee.


The trend continues on Monday with temperatures once again climbing well into the 80s. The heat index will return to the 90s for most of the afternoon with just a 20% chance of a stray shower in a few spots.

While the rain chances are low for the next two days, that’s going to change by Tuesday evening. A cut-off low pressure system located in the Gull will provide more moisture in our area. This will increase our rain chances by midweek. Tuesday and Wednesday will be the best chance in seeing scattered storms in the Pee Dee. In addition to the rain chances, we will also have more clouds cover, this is going to keep our temperatures at bay in the low to mid 80s.
