FIRST ALERT: Heat index soars above 100 again this afternoon


    MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Our summer pattern continues, as the heat and humidity climb throughout the day.

    Isolated showers this morning will clear leaving us with blazing sunshine. This will send afternoon temperatures into the lower 90s at the beach and the middle 90s across the Pee Dee. High humidity will push the heat index to 101 to 105 degrees during the afternoon through early evening. Just a stray storm or two will develop by late afternoon.

    Friday will see a similar set up with plenty of heat and humidity and the heat index over 100 with a few afternoon storms.

    A weak cold front will drop into the Carolinas over the weekend and stall through early next week. This front will interact with high humidity to create a much better chance of showers and storms. While the weekend will not be a washout, storm chances will increase and some periods of locally heavy rain will be likely at times.
