Weather in Myrtle Beach and Rainy Day Attractions
The weather in Myrtle Beach is generally mild. With its prime location right on the coast, coastal breezes keep temperatures warmer than inland areas in the winter months and cooler than inland areas during the summer months. Because of its coastal location, the area is also prone to sporadic rain showers. In many cases, the coastal storms sweep in and then quickly leave. During the summer months, it is common for several days of a seven-day forecast to have at least a 30% chance of rain. Because of this chance of rain in the forecast on a regular basis, you will want to have a backup plan for fun on your getaway that takes you away from the beaches and golf courses during rainy weather. There are some exciting indoor attractions in Myrtle Beach that are just perfect for rainy day fun.
