MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A cold front will push off shore tonight and gradually usher in cooler and more comfortable weather for Friday into the weekend.


Thursday will start off with a cold front continuing to push off shore. However, the much cooler and less humid weather lags well behind the front. The result will be temperatures returning to the lower to middle 80s on Thursday with periods of mostly cloudy skies.

A lingering shower or two will be possible late Thursday.

Cooler and less humid weather will pour into the region on a breezy northeast wind setting the state for a perfect fall-like forecast through the weekend. Friday will see plenty of sunshine through the day with virtually no humidity. Temperatures will spend most of the day in the 70s and only briefly hit 80 to 81 in most spots. Friday night will bring a real fall feel as temperatures drop into the 50s to near 60.


Plenty of sunshine and low humidity remains in place through the weekend. Afternoon temperatures will climb into the lower 80s as nighttime temperatures remain comfortably cool in the 50s and 60s.

While the forecast remains beautiful here at home, 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. If you plan to head to the beach this week, prepare for rough surf and a high rip current risk.
