MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Temperatures soar this week ahead of a long stretch of soggy weather.


While a few showers are likely overnight, most rain will leave here by sunrise Tuesday. Any lingering cloud cover quickly exits, allowing for mainly sunny skies by the afternoon.

We’ll begin the warming trend with afternoon highs hitting 75° along the Grand Strand. Areas inland of the Waterway, away from the sea breeze, will climb into the lower 80s.
