MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Persistent cloudy skies will gradually start to brighten up on Friday with much more sunshine on tap for the weekend.

Cloudy skies will remain in place tonight as milder air remains in place. Temperatures will only drop to around 60 on the beaches and into the lower to middle 50s inland.

Cooler temperatures and a gusty wind return to the region on Sunday when afternoon readings will only reach the lower 60s as sunshine continues.
