MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Cooler and much less humid weather finally arrives tonight setting the stage for a beautiful stretch of weather to start the weekend.


A surge of noticeably cooler and much less humid weather will blow into the region behind a cold front tonight. The result will be temperatures falling into the lower 60s inland and middle to upper 60s near the beaches. A northeast wind will blow at around 10 mph making for one of the most comfortable nights we’ve seen in months.


Friday is shaping up to be a fantastic day. As the cooler and drier weather moves in, cloud-free skies will be on tap through the day. Temperatures that start the day in the 60s will climb into the 70s by lunchtime and only briefly hit 81 to 82 degrees for afternoon highs. Once again, a north breeze will add a bit more comfort to the day.

The coolest weather will settle in Friday night into Saturday morning. Early morning temperatures will range from the mid 50s inland to the upper 50s to near 60 at the beach. Skies will once again be sunny through the day with very low humidity. Afternoon temperatures will climb to 80 to 82 degrees.

Some changes are on the way for Sunday as the latest data suggests some mainly light showers will be possible. The day will not be a washout, but as an upper level system scoops up some moisture, mostly cloudy skies and pop up showers will be possible. Right now, rain chances have been increased to 40%. Temperatures will remain comfortable in the lower 80s.
