CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Quiet weather is on tap for the overnight and high pressure continues to control our weather. Overnight lows will be in the upper 20′s well inland to mid 30′s on the beaches. Warmer on Wednesday with highs in the low 60s. A cold front will approach our area Thursday, showers are possible with temperatures in the 60s. Our attention will then turn to an area of low pressure Friday and Saturday. This system is forecast to move along the coast during this time frame. Temperatures will be key in determining what type of precipitation we see. Right now, it appears likely that temperatures will be in the 30s and 40s on Friday and Saturday. However, there’s considerable uncertainty as to where this area of low pressure will track. As we saw with Sunday’s system, the track will be key as what type of precipitation we see. Right now, plan on a very cold stretch of weather Friday and Saturday with the potential for unsettled weather. With warm air aloft and surface temperatures cooling into the low 30s, freezing rain and or rain appear to be the most likely precipitations type with this event. Details will change over the next few days, stay tuned.
