FIRST ALERT: Hot and humid through the end of the week
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Summer may be unofficially over, but the heat and humidity remain through the rest of the week.
Heat will continue to pump into the region on Wednesday sending temperatures above average. With plenty of sunshine, temperatures will range from the lower 90s at the beach to the middle 90s inland.
Humidity will increase as well sending the heat index to near or just above 100°.
REST OF THE WEEK
The unseasonably hot weather will continue on Thursday as temperatures return to the lower and middle 90s. Once again, high humidity will send the heat index to around 100 by the afternoon.
SHOWERS AND STORMS RETURN FOR THE WEEKEND
A weak cold front will start to drift into the Carolinas on Friday and linger through much of the weekend. The result will be increasing chances of showers and storms at times.
After climbing into the upper 80s and lower 90s on Friday, the front will spark off the first chance of rain since Idalia blew through the region. The chance of rain increases to 40% by the afternoon.
The weekend will see temperatures ease down a bit into the middle 80s. However, the combination of humidity and the lingering front will result in the chance of showers and storms. Saturday will see the best risk at 40% while chances drop to 30% by Sunday.
