MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Enjoy the weather today because that Summer heat will returning this week!


For folks heading off to church this morning, we’ll start the day with some patchy fog. The fog will clear out by 9am. Temperature will be in the 70s this morning with our highs upper 80s at the beach and lower 90s inland this afternoon. Humidity will creep a bit higher and send the heat index to near 100 for most areas. Once again, the majority of the region will stay dry with just a 20% chance of a stray storm or two in the afternoon.

Rain chances will die off after sunset. Tonight, we’ll have partly cloudy skies with temperatures falling in the low to mid 70s.


High pressure system will develop further off the coast. This will filter in warmer and more humid humid air back into the Carolinas which means that Summertime heat is returning by Monday.
