MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Thanks to a stalled front, we’ll have rain chances sticking around this weekend.


We start the day with morning showers. A cluster of storms offshore will begin to move in the Grand Strand early in the day and will push farther inland by lunchtime. We’ll continue to track scattered storms throughout the day. Between the rain and cloudy, this will keep our highs in the low 80s this afternoon.

If you’re planning to go to Coastal Carolina’s home opener against Jacksonville State, here’s what to expect; the best chance for rain will be during tailgating. By kickoff, rain chances will begin to taper off for the night.

That same stalled front off the coast will bring enough moisture to trigger afternoon storms across the Grand Strand and Pee Dee. Overall, it will not be a washout and make sure you have the WMBF First Alert Weather App on hand with you when showers do pop up in the afternoon. With the lower rain chances tomorrow, temperatures are going to be a biter warmer with high in the mid 80s across our area.

A few showers will remain possible next week with daily temperatures returning to the 80s. Lee will pass well offshore as a large and powerful hurricane, but the only local impacts will come from large waves and rip currents.
