FIRST ALERT: Sunny Tuesday, warm end to 2020!

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - High pressure will keep our weather sunny for one last day before clouds and showers return to the forecast. We expect a mostly sunny sky today and highs in the low 60s this afternoon. The wind flow will switch to the east and southeast overnight and tomorrow bringing in some clouds and perhaps a few showers. A strong storm system will take shape back to our west on New Year’s Eve bringing the chance of a few showers and much warmer temperatures. Highs will be in the low 70s. That storm system will approach the area on New Year’s Day increasing our chance of rain, especially late in the day. There will be a storm threat across parts of the Southeast, right now it appears the best chance of a severe weather will stay away from the Lowcountry. Highs will be in the mid 70s on New Year’s Day. This storm may stall near our coast keeping the chance of rain into the upcoming weekend. We’ll keep you posted!

TODAY: Mostly Sunny. High 62.

WEDNESDAY: Increasing Clouds. Slight Chance of a Shower. High 63.

NEW YEAR’S EVE: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers. High 72.

NEW YEAR’S DAY: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Rain. High 75.
