MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Mostly cloudy skies will hang around at times through the weekend along with cooler than normal temperatures.


Northeast winds behind a cold front continue to keep that layer of low level moisture in the form of cloudy skies. These clouds will hang around throughout the day today, keeping high temperatures in the upper 60s. While some peeks of sunshine cannot be ruled out, we’ll see more clouds for majority of the day.

There’s just enough moisture along the coast today where light drizzle and showers needs to be added to the forecast for the Grand Strand. We will hold onto a 30% chance of rain for the beaches today. The further inland you go, those rain chances will drop to 0%. Today’s rain will be limited to the Grand Strand.


Have plans for the weekend? Mostly cloudy skies will be likely for both Saturday and Sunday but the rain chances remain minimal. High temperatures on Saturday will climb to around 70. By Sunday, temperatures will climb into the lower 70s with clouds for both days. Once again, some times of sunshine will also be possible.

More clouds and an isolated shower.

With enough moisture just off shore, we have added a rain chance at 20% to both Saturday and Sunday. It’s important to note that widespread rain is not expected for this weekend. A few light showers will be possible at times, but the rain will be light.

The forecast for Monday night calls for more clouds and a few light showers.

That same surge of moisture will also keep a few light showers in the forecast for Halloween, but will also help to boost temperatures. It will be a warm and rather humid Halloween with a 30% of some light showers at times. Temperatures will climb into the mid-upper 70s for Horry County and to near 80 further inland. Trick or treaters will be greeted by temperatures in the lower 70s, mostly cloudy skies and a lingering risk of one or two light showers.
