CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Inland Lowcountry counties will be under a freeze warning from 5 a.m. until 10 a.m. on Wednesday.

The National Weather Service issued the warning because temperatures are expected to drop to between 29 and 32 degrees for between two to four hours. 

Lowcountry counties under the freeze warning are Berkeley, Dorchester, Williamsburg, inland Colleton and inland Beaufort Counties.

Tuesday overnight temperatures are expected to be in the 30s. 

"Bottom line is bring in the pets, bring in the plants, check on the elderly tonight," said Live 5 Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh."It's definitely going to be on the cold side."

Residents should be prepared for the potential of freezing temperatures that could harm sensitive pets or plants and damage unprotected plumbing.

Although we will see a lot of sunshine on Wednesday, temperatures are expected to reach only 50 degrees. 

"Sunshine will continue but chilly highs on Wednesday in the lower 50's and mid 50's on Thursday," Walsh said."By Friday and the weekend temps will moderate back to the mid 60's to near 70."

In addition, the National Weather Service says a hard freeze will be possible Thursday morning. 

"The freeze could be especially damaging with lows dropping into the mid to upper 20s," NWS officials said.

Freezing temperatures are possible again Friday morning.
