FIRST ALERT: Patchy frost in the Pee Dee tonight, gradual warm up to follow
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - An unseasonably chilly night will give way to milder weather for the rest of the week. The next risk of rain arrives by Friday.
Clear skies and a diminishing breeze will allow temperatures to cool quickly tonight. Along the Grand Strand, overnight temperatures will drop into the lower to middle 40s.
Inland areas will see the chilliest readings with overnight lows dropping into the middle 30s. Areas along and north of the North Carolina border will see some areas drop into the middle 30s with the risk of a little patchy frost in some locations. These areas have been placed under a frost advisory tonight into daybreak Tuesday.
After a chilly start to the day, temperatures will begin to rebound on Tuesday. With sunny skies, afternoon temperatures will climb into the upper 60s to around 70. That warming trend will continue through Wednesday and Thursday as afternoon highs rebound into the lower to middle 70s at the beach and middle to upper 70s inland.
NEXT RAIN CHANCE
Low pressure will develop across the Gulf of Mexico by the middle of the week. This area of low pressure will then lift northward and into the Carolinas by Friday. As this happens, the risk of scattered showers and a few storms will increase. The best risk of rain arrives on Friday when the chances have increased to 60%.
The weekend will see a few lingering showers and storms, but will be nothing like the widespread rain of the past weekend. In fact, rain chances on Saturday are only 20% and the increase slightly to 40% by Sunday as a few pop up showers and storms are likely to develop.
