FIRST ALERT: St. Patrick’s warm up followed by rain and another cool down
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A brief surge of much warmer weather arrives today ahead of overnight rain and another round of chilly temperatures.
WARM AND WINDY FRIDAY
A big warm up arrives today as south winds push temperatures above normal for the first time this week. Afternoon readings will reach the middle 70s inland and into the lower 70s at the beach. Winds will turn quite gusty today with afternoon gusts as high as 35 mph. Sunny skies this morning will give way to increasing clouds through the day.
The next strong cold front starts to approach the region tonight. Ahead of the front, rain will overspread the area well after sunset and continue off and on through the night. Temperatures will slowly fall into the upper 50s to near 60.
By daybreak Saturday, the cold front will be pushing off shore allowing the next round of cool weather to return. Morning temperatures in the upper 50s will hold steady for most of the day and even slowly fall by the afternoon. The steadiest rain will end by mid morning, but cloudy skies and a few lingering showers will be likely through the mid afternoon.
MORE FROST THREATS
Saturday night will see temperatures falling into the upper 30s to near 40. As more cold air moves into the Carolinas, yet another frost and freeze threat will develop Sunday night and again Monday night as temperatures fall well into the 30s to near freezing.
