Warming up this week as the wind start to calm down!

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Warmer temperatures and less wind are on the way as we kick off the brand new work week. An area of low pressure off of our coast will slowly pull away today helping to bring more sunshine, warmer temperatures and a little less wind. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds today with highs in the low 70s. It will still be breezy today with wind gusts up to 25-30 mph along the coast. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the Charleston Harbor with a high risk of rip currents and a High Surf Advisory at our beaches. The wind will begin calming down tonight with a quiet Tuesday ahead. Under a mostly cloudy sky, highs will be a few degrees cooler in the upper 60s. The temperatures really begin to warm up on Wednesday with highs near 80 degrees by Thursday and Friday. The rain chance will start to increase later this weekend with scattered showers and storms possible Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
