FIRST ALERT - Severe weather threat has ended, a few more showers late this afternoon
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The threat of severe weather has come to an end with more stable weather arriving in the area through the afternoon.
Nicole has weakened to a tropical depression as it pushes through the western Carolinas this afternoon. A break in the weather is likely from the late morning hours through the mid afternoon when some sunshine will be likely. Temperatures will soar into the upper 70s to near 80 with a gusty breeze.
Another area of light rain and mist will overspread the region late this afternoon and evening. There will also be another bout of windy weather that arrives later today when peak wind gusts will likely reach 35 to 40 mph in most areas.
Minor coastal flooding is possible once again this morning with a COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY in effect from 7:00 AM through 12:00 PM
A HIGH SURF ADVISORY is in place once again today as dangerous surf conditions continue. Breaking waves of 6 to 8 feet will continue through Friday evening. This rough surf will lead to areas of beach erosion and could worsen some of the erosion issues caused by Ian.
Drier air will move into the region tonight and bring an end to the light rain. Temperatures will remain mild in the lower 60s.
Saturday will see a return to mostly sunny skies and pleasant afternoon temperatures in the middle 70s.
A surge of much cooler weather will arrive along with mostly cloudy skies on Sunday. Afternoon temperatures will struggle to climb out of the 50s to near 60.
