Black ice issues expected overnight in Myrtle Beach area as temperatures fall

The heaviest of the rain is over for the Grand Strand, but cold temperatures could mean issues with black ice on roadways early Friday, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington, N.C.

“Rain is quickly exiting the coast at this time, but periods of light rain and drizzle will persist through late morning,” said Joshua Weiss with the weather service Thursday morning. “At the same time, colder air behind the departing low pressure system will begin to filter southward towards the area.”

Inland areas remained under a winter weather advisory because of cooler temperatures there, but in the Myrtle Beach area daytime highs on Thursday will be near 43 degrees, forecasters said. The overnight low will be near 30 degrees.
