FIRST ALERT: Scattered showers & storms off & on this week
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Those afternoon showers we’ve seen across the Pee Dee this afternoon will begin to taper after dinner time.
The scattered showers we’ve saw this afternoon will continue to push towards the northeast. By dinnertime, most of the rain will be out of the area. We’re expecting drier conditions tonight, but I can’t rule out an isolated shower. Temperatures are going to fall in the low to mid 70s.
A cold front will move into the Carolinas by late Tuesday night, keeping rain chances around for Tuesday plans. Highs will stay in the mid 80s for the beaches with the upper 80s inland. A 30% chance of showers and storms will continue for Tuesday afternoon as the cold front moves in.
A cold front means colder weather and dry conditions right? Not this week. Unfortunately, this front stalls out over the Carolinas, keeping moisture consistent and rather high through the rest of the week.
Rain chances will increase to 40% each afternoon from Wednesday-Sunday. There may be a few days where we need to bump the afternoon coverage up to 60% but it’s simply too early to do that for now. Highs will be in the low-mid 80s for the beaches with the mid-upper 80s inland.
