FIRST ALERT: Chilly night ahead
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Clear skies and chilly temperatures settle in tonight before temperatures warm again for the rest of the week.
Cool high pressure will remain parked over the region tonight resulting in clear skies and chilly temperatures. Inland areas will see temperatures falling into the lower 40s while the Grand Strand drops into the middle 40s. While one or two spots well inland could dip into the upper 30s, frost will not be a concern.
After a chilly start to the day, temperatures will start to warm by the afternoon. With lots of sunshine, afternoon temperatures will reach the middle 60s on the beaches and to around 70 inland.
INTO THE WEEKEND
Friday will continue to see warmer air move into the region with plenty of sunshine again. Temperatures will warm into the lower 70s at the beach and middle to upper 70s inland.
While Saturday will be the warmest day of the week with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s, we do have our next round of showers & storms as the next cold front moves through the Carolinas.
Winds will pick up throughout the day and the front will bring scattered showers and storms to the Pee Dee and Grand Strand during the early to mid afternoon. While severe weather is not expected, some of the showers and storms could produce some strong wind gusts. Even outside of any showers or storms, Saturday will be a windy day with gusts of 35 to 40 mph likely.
The cold front will quickly move off shore Saturday night and push the showers off shore with it. Cooler air will arrive behind the front with Sunday afternoon temperatures settling into middle 60s with a return to sunny skies.
