MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Winter makes a brief return this weekend.


Models continue to pick up on an interesting scenario around daybreak Saturday. Low pressure will quickly develop just off shore. This will be happening as temperatures drop into the 30s. The developing area of low pressure will throw just a little moisture back into the region for a few light sprinkles and stray showers.

There’s an outside chance of a few wet flakes mixing in with a few of the sprinkles at times from roughly 6:00 AM through 9:00 AM Saturday. Again, this would only be a flurry or two with no significant precipitation expected.

After that, we’ll be dry for the rest of the day. Temperatures are going to remain chilly today with highs reaching in the mid 40s this afternoon. So if you’re heading out to the Martin Luther King Parade in the Myrtle Beach make sure you bundle up.

We’ll have clear skies tonight with temperatures dropping in the upper 20s to lows 30s. Besides that, the weather remains quiet as well.


For folks heading off to church tomorrow morning, it’s going to be chilly. Luckily, we won’t stay cold for too long for tomorrow. High temperatures will climb a bit on Sunday into the lower 50s.
