MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Much warmer weather will return to the area to end the week and continue into the weekend. A few rain chances will return to the area as well.


Today’s weak storm system that brough cloudy skies and a few light showers will exit the region overnight. Skies will gradually clear with a little patchy fog developing. Temperatures will settle into the middle and upper 50s by Thursday Morning.


With a return to sunny skies and a breezy southwest wind, temperatures will soar on Thursday. Afternoon highs will climb all the way into the lower to middle 70s at the beach and into the lower 80s inland.
