Rain, wind and cold for the Lowcountry

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A fast moving storm system in the Gulf of Mexico will spread rain into the Lowcountry Wednesday night followed by windy and colder weather.

Meteorologist Justin Lock says, "This storm just grazes us overnight as it passes well to our south. But some areas could pick up a good soaking especially closer to the coast."

Lock says expect rain to arrive around sunset if not earlier and last into the early hours of Thursday, making for a potentially sloppy ride home from work. Rainfall totals will range from a quarter of an inch to a half an inch across the Lowcountry.

Most of the rain is expected to wrap up by sunrise Thursday but clouds will linger through the first part of the day. Winds will become breezy on Thursday as colder air begins to rush in.

Friday morning will be the coldest with wake up temperatures in the mid and upper 20s.
