FIRST ALERT: Not as hot with pop up downpours this weekend
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Showers and storms will be possible at times this weekend as the recent heat starts to back off.
A weak cold front will drift into the Carolinas early Saturday and only very slowly move across the region through late Sunday. With the front in the area and plenty of humidity around, pop up showers and storms will be likely, but the weekend will not be a washout.
The risk for showers and storms on Saturday is 40% and will be possible at any point in the day. The chances will tend to taper off by the late afternoon with just a stray shower possible for the CCU home opener.
More clouds along with passing showers and storms will keep temperatures held down into the middle 80s through the day.
The front will remain across the area on Sunday and will once again keep a few showers and storms around, but the chances drop to 30%.
Temperatures will once again climb into the lower and middle 80s.
A few showers will remain possible next week with daily temperatures returning to the 80s. Lee will pass well off shore as a large and powerful hurricane, but the only local impacts will come from large waves and rip currents.
