MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A strong cold front will move through the area this evening and usher in a dramatic change to autumn just in time for the official start of the season.

Fall begins at 9:04 PM this evening and it’s around that time that a powerful cold front moves through the area.


The cold front will be accompanied by areas of clouds and a few stray showers through late this evening before quickly pushing off shore. Behind the front, temperatures will fall quickly through the rest of the night. Morning temperatures will fall into the middle and upper 50s by daybreak Friday.
