CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - We are watching a storm system that will bring stormy conditions across the Southeast on Sunday. This storm will likely bring some heavy rain along the coast and some freezing rain well inland with snow for upstate. The chance for freezing rain our area is mainly confined to upper Berkeley County, Williamsburg, Georgetown and possibly upper Dorchester counties. I-95 and west has the highest threat on Sunday for wintry weather. In the meantime, expect lots of sunshine and quiet weather over the next couple days. Chilly mornings will continue with lows in the 30s through the end of the week. Clouds will begin to increase on Saturday ahead of a developing storm system forecast to be west of the area through Saturday afternoon. The chance of rain will likely increase Saturday night and Sunday as an area of low pressure begins to move through our area. Temperatures are likely to be well above freezing which will result in only rain here locally from Sunday morning through Sunday evening. To our northwest, especially from the Upstate into North Carolina, ice and snow is more likely to occur. The exact track of this area of low pressure will determine exactly who gets snow and who will only get a cold rain. We’ll keep you updated as the picture gets clearer over the next couple days! Due to the threat of disruptive weather Sunday, it is a First Alert Weather Day.
