The week ahead: Winter for a few days, then another rebound

/ January 19, 2020 at 9:36 PM

Are y’all ready to chill out a little? We’ll start the week with temperatures well below normal as an Arctic airmass takes hold across the Lowcountry. Freezing temperatures will be possible inland of 17 Monday morning with highs only topping out in the mid-40s. A more widespread freeze is forecasted Tuesday and Wednesday, with the potential for freezing conditions all the way into downtown Charleston. Be ready to bring in pets and sensitive plants.

As we get into the second half of the week, temperatures will begin to moderate. Thursday will approach 60°, and Friday will be much warmer as a cold front approaches the area with showers coming alongside it. Showers will gradually clear out Saturday, and by Sunday, we’ll have fewer clouds and temperatures back to near-normal levels for late January.
