FIRST ALERT: Unseasonably warm weather returns
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A surge of spring-like warmth will keep temperatures well above normal through the end of the week.
Clear skies remain in place tonight. Temperatures will range from 50 to 52 along the beaches and from 44-48 for inland areas and the Pee Dee.
Southerly winds will increase across the region on Wednesday and will result in temperatures surging to well above normal for this of the year. Afternoon temperatures will be the warmest for inland areas where readings will reach the middle 70s. The cooler Atlantic Ocean will keep the Grand Strand a touch cooler with afternoon highs in the upper 60s to near 70. Skies will remain mostly sunny through the day.
REST OF THE WEEK
The warming trend will continue to send temperatures to well above normal levels through Thursday and Friday. Afternoon temperatures will reach into the lower to middle 70s by Thursday. Friday will see another round of temperatures near 70 but will also see the next risk of rain as a cold front moves through the region.
Friday’s rain will be rather brief and not nearly as steady or as heavy as the past weekend. Rain totals will likely be a quarter of an inch or less for all areas.
The cold front will deliver around brief cool down for the weekend. Temperatures will fall into the 30s by Friday night and only reach to around 50° Saturday afternoon.
As we head into Saturday night, another round of chilly temperatures will continue with lows in the low-mid 30s. Milder weather returns on Sunday with highs in the upper 50s.
