FIRST ALERT: One more nice day ahead of near record heat
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Cooler temperatures and lower humidity will stick around through Thursday before another surge of very high heat and humidity returns by Friday into the weekend. Record high temperatures will be possible by Friday and Saturday.
With low humidity in place, temperatures will fall to very comfortable levels tonight. Inland areas will drop all the way into the middle 60s with areas closer to the coast dropping into the upper 60s to near 70.
Lower humidity will continue for Thursday as afternoon temperatures return to the middle to upper 80s near the beach and upper 80s to near 90 inland. With low humidity lingering, the heat index will not be an issue.
THROUGH THE WEEKEND
The next round of high heat and humidity quickly returns by Friday into the weekend. Temperatures across the Grand Strand will return to the lower 90s with upper 90s returning inland. Areas along the I-95 corridor will likely see record high temperatures tied or broken Friday and Saturday as some areas hit 100. The increase in humidity will also help to push the heat index to as high as 110 at times.
With the increased heat and humidity, a few more storms will return to the forecast with the best chances arriving Sunday into early next week.
