MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Showers and thunderstorms will remain likely at times today before much drier air overspreads the region through the rest of the week.

Tropical humidity will continue to funnel into the region through the day today. As a result, scattered showers and thunderstorms will remain possible especially this afternoon and evening. Some locally heavy rain will remain possible once again.

Much drier air will overspread the area starting late Tuesday and will result in a much needed drying trend.
