Cold front to bring storms ahead of the holiday weekend!
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Typical hit or miss showers and thunderstorms are expected over the next couple days with plenty of heat and humidity. Activity will wind down this evening with temperatures in the 80s, falling into the 70s overnight. Highs top out tomorrow near 90 degrees inland, with mid 80s at the beaches. The best chance of rain will be near the coast early tomorrow with rain drifting inland tomorrow afternoon. Keep the umbrellas handy just in case!
We’re watching a cold front that will likely bring a round of wet weather, including storms, Friday and Friday night. Computer models are trending farther south with this front for the holiday weekend which may be enough to reduce the chance of showers and storms here locally. Right now, we’ll leave in the chance of a few showers and storms Saturday and on the Fourth of July but the trend is for less rain for the fireworks.
In the tropics, Potential Tropical Cyclone Five has developed and will likely become Tropical Storm Elsa. This system will likely enter the Caribbean early next week as a strong tropical storm with 60 mph winds. Anything that comes in this direction we will need to keep a close eye on. We will be sure to keep you updated.
