This most recent warm spell reaches its peak on Thursday as temperatures soar into the upper 70s at the beach to lower to middle 80s inland.

The forecast of 76 likely comes up just shy of a record high in the Grand Strand. However, both Florence and Lumberton should easily break the previous records for the day.

Along with the warmth, it will be a windy day with plenty of sunshine alternating with occasional clouds.


A weak cold front will start to drop into the area late in the day on Friday resulting in thickening clouds and slightly cooler temperatures in the lower to middle 70s. A few light showers will be possible by sunset.

Milder weather returns once again on Sunday with brighter skies and temperatures returning to the 60s to near 70.
