FIRST ALERT: Watch a mid week cold front
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Seasonably warm and humid weather will give way to a fall-like feeling by the end of the week. Hurricane Lee will pass well off shore, but create dangerous rip currents.
Typical September weather continues on Tuesday with a warm and humid afternoon on tap. Temperatures will reach the middle 80s at the beach and upper 80s inland. Just one or two isolated showers will develop in the afternoon with the rain chance at 20%.
COLD FRONT ARRIVES
A cold front will start to push into the region on Wednesday. It will be warm and humid again with a better chance of showers and storms through the afternoon and evening as the cold front moves into the area. The front will push off shore by early Thursday morning allowing much cooler and less humid weather to blow in.
LOVELY END TO THE WEEK
Cooler and drier air moves into the Carolinas as the winds turn northerly through the day on Thursday and Friday. Afternoon high temperatures will fall into the upper 70s to lower 80s for the rest of the week and into the weekend. Morning temperatures will fall into the 50s inland and low-mid 60s along the beaches.
All the while, Hurricane Lee will pass well off shore with no wind or rain impacts locally. However, large surf and rip currents are likely through the end of the week along with some minor beach erosion.
