MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Mostly sunny and warm weather on Tuesday will give way to higher humidity and a risk of showers and storms during the day Wednesday.


High pressure will remain in control of the region through Tuesday with plenty of sunshine and mild temperatures. Morning temperatures in the lower to middle 60s will climb into the upper 80s inland and into the upper 70s to lower 80s closer to the Grand Strand.

A weak cold front will slip into the region late in the day Wednesday. Humidity increasing ahead of the front will lead to scattered showers and storms developing during the afternoon and evening. No widespread rain or severe weather is expected with rain chances at 40%.

Temperatures will continue to be quite warm with lower 80s across the Grand Strand and middle to upper 80s inland.

As the front pushes to our south, cooler temperatures will filter in for Thursday and Friday. Right now, that front looks to stall just to our south across the Low Country, keeping just enough moisture off the coast for the chance of an isolated shower and mostly cloudy skies both Thursday and Friday.

The best risk of rain arrives Wednesday.
