FIRST ALERT: BIG warm up on the way
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The long stretch of Arctic cold air is fading away and will soon be replaced with temperatures surging to well above normal.
Tonight will see the last round of cold and frosty temperatures for a while. Temperatures across the Pee Dee will drop into the middle and upper 20s while inland areas drop to near 30. A heavy frost is likely early Wednesday morning.
Temperatures will warm steadily through Wednesday afternoon reaching the lower to middle 50s - the warmest we’ve seen since early Friday morning.
Milder temperatures will continue to move into the region through the end of the week and into the weekend and the start of 2023. Temperatures will warm to 60 by Thursday and then into the lower and middle 60s for the New Years holiday. The warming trend will continue into next week when temperatures climb to near 70.
NEW YEAR’S FORECAST
An incoming low pressure system will move toward the Carolinas late on Friday and into New Year’s Eve. Rain will overspread the region on New Years Eve and will likely continue at times through midnight. Despite the rain, temperatures will be very mild - well into the 60s.
Clouds and rain will clear out and as sunshine returns for New Years Day.
