COLD START TO FRIDAY, WEEKEND WASHOUT ON THE WAY

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - High pressure keeps us dry and cool on Friday with afternoon highs around 60! Enjoy the dry day as Saturday and Sunday will be the opposite. An area of low pressure moving in from the Gulf will bring the Lowcountry yet another wet weekend – possibly 1-3” by Sunday afternoon. Timing wise, rain will push in by Saturday afternoon as well as gusty wind. Rain will become heavy overnight into Sunday morning with off and on rain into Sunday afternoon. High tide is at 9:07 AM on Sunday which will coincide with heavy rain through the morning, so watch for flooding in low-lying areas. Heavy rain ends by Sunday evening, but scattered rain is possible Monday and Tuesday as well. Temperatures will remain cooler than normal through the weekend and work week.
