MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – An incoming cold front will bring a series of showers and gusty winds for this morning, making for a slow ride as you look to start the day.
Showers will arrive from the west today and will make for a strenuous drive, first into the Pee Dee and then into the Grand Strand.
The main time of the worst of the rain today appears to be from the morning commute until lunchtime.
Multiple rounds of showers will not only provide the pockets of showers but also the gusty winds. It is important to note that many of these showers will be patchy and light in nature. Those with the heaviest showers will slow down the journey.
In addition to rain, wind gusts of 30-40 mph will be possible with higher isolated gusts at times. A high surf advisory is issued for the beaches due to the increased threat of wind, which could lead to slight beach erosion in some places near high tide this morning.
As the rain subsides, temperatures will still remain warm for Friday. Highs will climb into the upper 60s to descend into the 70s this afternoon before cooler weather rushes in for the weekend. It will take some time for the clouds to dissipate. We remain cloudy for the day before the sun returns for the weekend.
Cooler weather will filter in behind the cold front, dropping temperatures a bit for the weekend. Highs will range from the 70s on Friday to the upper 50s to the lower 60s for the weekend. Overnight temperatures will be cool with overnight readings in the 30s and 40s. We are rain free for all weekend plans.
