Warm Weekend Before An Arctic Blast of Cold!

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - An old cold front is pushing south but running out of gas and will stall. Slightly cooler air will work in behind it as we head into the overnight and early Saturday. We could see a few showers on Saturday, but a good portion of the area could remain dry until Sunday. A larger area of low pressure along a cold front will move through the area late Sunday, bringing us some pockets of heavier rainfall/storms by late Sunday afternoon or evening. Some of this rain will continue into Monday morning before we clear out after lunch and through the middle of next week. We’ll feel a BIG punch of cold air behind the storm system though, with high temperatures only in the upper 40′s to lower 50′s by Tuesday. It will also be windy on Monday and Tuesday. This will be some of the coldest air of the season so far, so dig out your heavy coats! Overnight lows on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning will be near freezing or below away from the coast. A slow warming trend will return by later in the week.

TONIGHT: Feeling cooler, LOW: 56.

SATURDAY: Sun and clouds with a few showers possible, HIGH: 68.

SUNDAY: Partly Cloudy, afternoon rain possible, HIGH: 68.

MONDAY: Early rain/thunderstorms, HIGH: 70.

TUESDAY: Sunny, windy and cold, HIGH: 48.

WEDNESDAY: Sunny & Chilly, HIGH: 52.
