If firefighters were hoping for a little rain today to help them battle a raging wildfire in the North Myrtle Beach area, they are out of luck.
"The chance of rain, it might not be an absolute zero, but it's probably less than 10 percent," said Steve Rowley, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Charleston. "It looks like it's going to be a mostly sunny day."
Temperatures and humidity also likely will make it a hot, sweaty day.
Rowley said high temperatures will be around 80 degrees, and the relative humidity will start at about 40 percent in the morning, about 15 points higher than the beginning humidity levels Thursday.
The wind estimates are more bad news for the fire battle.
"First thing in the morning, less than 5 mph. Then by late morning, wind speeds could pick up to 10 to 15 mph," Rowley said. "That will probably be until 7 or 8 p.m., and around sunset they will start to diminish."
