FIRST ALERT: Freeze warning, watch issued for parts of the Lowcountry
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The National Weather Service is expecting some cold overnight temperatures this weekend for parts of the Lowcountry.
That is why they issued a freeze warning for several counties, including Williamsburg, inland Georgetown and parts of Orangeburg.
A freeze warning means temperatures 32 degrees Fahrenheit or below are expected.
Those temps can kill crops, other sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing, according to the National Weather Service.
A freeze watch was also issued for Dorchester, inland Berkeley and inland Colleton counties.
The watch starts late Sunday night and lasts through Monday morning.
The warning for Georgetown and Williamsburg counties goes from 1 a.m. to 9 a.m. Monday, and the warning for Orangeburg County starts at 3 a.m. and lasts still 10 a.m. on Monday.
