CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Tonight will be mostly cloudy and mild with temperatures in the low 60s. A weak cold front will try to make it into the Lowcountry on Thursday increasing our chance of a few showers or stray thunderstorm. If any storms make their way into the area from the west late Thursday, gusty winds may accompany any storms. This front will wash out across the area keeping some clouds and a chance of a few showers in the forecast for New Year’s Eve. Despite the clouds, temperatures will warm into the mid to upper 70s by Friday afternoon. This front will lift back north of the area in the form of a warm front for the first day of 2022. Temperatures may peak near 80 degrees Saturday afternoon ahead of our next cold front. The aforementioned cold front will arrive on Sunday bringing a round of showers and storms followed by much cooler weather Sunday night and Monday. A few strong to severe storms are possible Sunday, depending on the timing of the cold front. Much cooler behind the front, highs will only reach the 50s with morning lows in the 30s early next week!
