MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Not the prettiest weekend to outside, clouds are back today followed by a Sunday washout.


Saturday will start off with fair skies and chilly temperatures but skies will quickly turn overcast through the day. The thickening clouds and a northeast wind will keep temperatures held down into the lower 50s. Despite all of the clouds, the forecast remains rain-free for Saturday.
