CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Freezing rain continues across the Lowcountry creating a glaze of ice on roadways, surfaces and making bridges and overpasses slick. This will continue into the early morning hours before ending by around 6 a.m. or so. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the entire Lowcountry overnight! Avoid traveling unless necessary overnight! The freezing rain may end as a very brief period of sleet or light snow, especially across our inland areas near I-95 and north of I-26. Little to no accumulation is expected. It will be a cold start to our Saturday but temperatures will climb above freezing by mid-morning with the sunshine beginning to peek out as well. If roads become icy overnight, there should be a rapid improvement throughout Saturday morning. We’re going to stay chilly through the weekend with highs in the low 40s Saturday, upper 40s on Sunday. Overnight lows Saturday into early Sunday will be in the lower to mid 20′s inland and freezing on the beaches. We’ll jump back into the 50s Monday and Tuesday, but it will still be chilly and below average to start the new week.

TONIGHT: Freezing Rain & Drizzle, Low: 30.

SATURDAY: Freezing Rain Ends Early around sunrise. Clouds to Sunshine. High 42.

SUNDAY: Sunny and Chilly. High 49.

MONDAY: Sunny Sky. High 55.

TUESDAY: Showers possible, High: 56.
