FIRST ALERT: More sunshine and comfortable temperatures ahead of a wet end to the week
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Pleasant and cooler weather returns for the next several days before increasing moisture from Ian leads to rain for the end of the week.
Tuesday will be a sunny and pleasant day with morning temperatures near 60 rising to the lower 80s by the afternoon along with lower humidity.
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY
The middle of the week will see a shot of cooler weather arrive into the region. When combined with mostly cloudy skies, temperatures will be unseasonably cool with afternoon highs only in the lower 70s and overnight temperatures in the 50s to near 60. High clouds from Hurricane Ian will start to overspread the area and turn skies mostly cloudy to overcast at times.
REMNANTS OF IAN TO IMPACT THE REGION LATE THIS WEEK
Hurricane Ian will make landfall in Florida sometime late Wednesday through late Thursday and then quickly weaken as it moves into Georgia and potentially the western Carolinas. While damaging winds, storm surge and flooding rain is NOT in the local forecast, the combination of Ian’s remnants and a front stalled off shore will lead to plenty of unsettled weather.
Tropical moisture will interact with the front just off shore to produce increasing rain from Thursday night through Saturday. Some locally heavy rain will be possible at times with several inches looking likely at this point.
Winds will turn breezy, but no damaging winds are expected. Gusts of 30 to 40 mph may develop especially near the beaches by Friday and Saturday. Make sure to keep up with the forecast of Ian for any additional changes.
