MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A brief surge of summertime heat will send temperatures well above normal on Wednesday along with the risk of a few showers and storms.


Fair skies and milder temperatures are on tap tonight as readings drop into the upper 60s along the beaches and middle 60s inland. A stray shower or storm will be possible, but most areas will stay dry overnight.

A surge of summertime heat will move into the Carolinas on Wednesday with weather much more typical of June. Afternoon temperatures will soar into the lower 90s inland and upper 80s at the beach. Once again, a few isolated showers and storms will develop into the afternoon and evening with rain chances at 30%.

A cold front will move through Wednesday night and drop temperatures into the day on Thursday. While the front will move through, there’s just enough moisture around for a few more showers throughout the day on Thursday. Highs will be cooler behind the front with temperatures in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

The risk of a stray shower is only 20% during Thursday.

Friday looks spectacular with plenty of sunshine, low humidity and temperatures again in the upper 70s to near 80.

The forecast looks great for the kick off of CCMF.

Mainly dry and mild through the weekend.

This weekend will be a warm one if you are planning on heading to CCMF. It’s traditionally cooler than previous years, but highs in the lower 80s will bring some warmth for those weekend plans. Another round of storms will be possible in the afternoon for Sunday. Right now, those chances look to be our traditional “pop-up” type of storms.
