MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Temperatures continue to climb this weekend as the summertime mugginess returns.


We’ll make a run into the 90s as we move throughout Saturday, climbing to around 92° along the Grand Strand, closer to 98° for areas inland of the Waterway. The added humidity will make it feel even warmer as the heat index climbs above 105°.

One or two-afternoon downpours are possible Saturday, but most spots remain dry.

The heat returns Sunday with another round of 90s and heat indices around 105°. Rain chances will increase with scattered showers and storms expected throughout the afternoon. These will provide at least some relief from the heat on Sunday.
