MYRTLE BEACH, S.C (WMBF) - Temperatures are going to continue to rise this week as we could see record-breaking temperatures on Wednesday.


For those attending the MarshiGras at Murrells Inlet on Tuesday night, we’re gonna stay dry and cloudy with mild temperatures in the 60s. Thanks to the cloud cover, our overnight lows will stay mild in the upper 50s.

A high-pressure system located off the coast of Florida will funnel in warm southwest winds that are going to make it feel like it’s late spring. Temperatures are going to rise in the mid-70s along the Grand Strand and low 80s further inland for tomorrow and Thursday. Temperatures like this are likely to shatter some records especially in areas across the Pee Dee. We’re going to warm like this for the rest of the work week.

Our next rain chance will arrive Saturday afternoon. A weak storm system will bring scattered showers on Saturday. Rainfall amounts are going to remain low with this system, but it will bring cooler temperatures for the first half of the weekend. Highs are going to be in the upper 50s across our area. Luckily our temperatures are going to bounce back by Sunday with highs returning in the low 70s.
