After a chilling weekend, temperatures are expected to rebound back to near normal for the Myrtle Beach area during the week, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington, N.C.
Freeze warnings for the Grand Strand for Sunday and Monday morning were issued on Saturday, after a cold Canadian high pressure swept through the area, which caused temperatures to dip to near freezing.
Forecasters said the high pressure would shift offshore Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures will warm through the week until another cold front moves in on Thursday.
Temperatures dropped to near freezing during the weekend, but did not break any overnight low temperature records set in 1954 for North Myrtle Beach, according to climate data at the weather service.

The colder weather did bring a frost and some sensitive outdoor plants and vegetation were impacted by the weather, officials said.
The average first frost for the Grand Strand typically occurs during the first week of November, according to Clemson Cooperative Extension.
For the rest of this week, daytime temperatures will return to the 70s and overnight lows will be in the 50s, according to the forecast.
