Chilly Wednesday brings nighttime freeze warning

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Live 5 Meteorologist Justin Lock has your chilly Wednesday forecast:

Feeling like mid-winter today in the Lowcountry. And it gets even colder later tonight where a FREEZE WARNING is in effect for the entire Lowcountry.

Today, look for bright but cold and windy sunshine with highs more than 20 degrees below normal around 48° inland and 51° on the coast. A breezy north wind will make things feel much colder all day long. Winds will gust to 25 mph at times.

Tonight, the winds calm and temps drop like a rock. Under a clear sky lows will fall to 28° in Charleston and low 30s on the coastline.

Temps do gradually warm the next several days and we'll be back near 70 by Friday.

Have a great day! Bundle up!
