Mild Thursday, but storms and cooler weather coming

Some early morning clouds will give way to partly sunny skies as we head into Thursday afternoon. High pressure off the coast will continue to bring southeasterly winds Thursday afternoon which will set up a decent sea breeze that may spark a stray shower inland. Highs for the day will again be warm in the mid-70s along the coast, to low 80s inland.

Thursday will be a bit breezy, but we will really see the wind pick up Friday out ahead of an approaching cold front. This front brought over 150 storm reports to the Midwest on Wednesday, including two tornado reports. More severe weather is expected Thursday over the mid-Mississippi and lower Ohio valleys.

The cold front will continue it's track east. The tail end of the front will reach the Pee Dee and Grand Strand late Friday into early Saturday bringing a good chance for showers and storms. Most of these storms will likely be below severe limits.

Once the front moves offshore, cooler weather will usher in and highs this weekend will climb only into the upper 60s.
