Need a rainy day activity on the Grand Strand? Here's where to go.

It is fitting that 2018 will probably end on a rainy note.

It’s poured this year in Horry County, and the final days of the year have been gloomy. According to the National Weather Service in Wilmington, North Carolina, the Grand Strand was expected to get between one to two inches of rain through Sunday. Into next week, the chances for rain never exceed 50 percent.

For New Year’s Eve at night, there will be a 30 percent chance of rain as the calendar year changes at midnight. For those looking to celebrate the ball drop, there is a chance of rain in New York City on Monday too.

Back in Horry County, the NWS’s seven-day forecast calls for chances of rain every day through Thursday, Jan. 3. Even when it’s not rainy, the clouds will probably persist and block the sun.

The temperature might reach 70 degrees on New Year’s Eve and on New Year’s Day, with lows in the 60s during the nighttime.

The high temperatures are not expected to last for long, though. On Wednesday of next week it’ll be cold and rainy with an expected high of 48 degrees.
