Myrtle Beach Climate & Geography

Myrtle Beach is an area sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Highway on eastern South Carolina. Similar to other southern states, it experiences a humid, tropical climate because of the Bermuda High pumping humidity from the Atlantic. Hot and wet summers lead to drier and mild winters. Winter temperatures tend to vary, however, with an average of 33 days of frost but no snow.
