Chilly temperatures greet Lowcountry residents

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Lowcountry residents woke up to chilly temperatures Thursday morning as a cold, Canadian high pressure continues to build across the southeast.

The high pressure will keep temperatures well below normal Thursday and Friday and even carry those lows into the weekend. A Freeze warning for coastal counties expired at 9 a.m.

Just about every town in the Lowcountry dropped below the freezing mark. Thursday's forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and it won't be as windy as Wednesday. Highs will be in the mid 50's.

Thursday night, temperatures drop back below freezing with lows once again expected to fall into the upper 20's to low 30's.

Friday looks nice with mainly sunny skies and a little milder with highs near 60 degrees. Saturday looks to be the warmest day of the next seven with highs in the low 60's. Sunday will be dry, but cold with highs only in the mid 50's.
