After the rain, a cool few days ahead

/ February 27, 2020 at 7:46 AM

It’s a much, much cooler start to Thursday as a cold front swung through late yesterday. Deep-layer dry air will keep skies clear throughout the day, and the cooler high pressure building in from the west will keep temperatures down in the mid-50s this afternoon. It’s a bit windy in the wake of the front; morning lows in the low 40s feel more like the mid-30s.

Freeze possible Friday morning; cool through Sunday

Friday and the Weekend forecast graphic. Friday: Mostly sunny. Freeze in the morning. Low 32, high 58. Saturday: Mostly sunny. Low 39, high 57. Sunday: Frost possible in the morning. Mostly sunny and warmer. Low 35, high 62. Forecast data from the National Weather Service in Charleston, SC.

Mostly clear and cool weather will persist into Sunday. There is the potential for a freeze away from the coast Friday morning. Given the warm winter we’ve had, there’s a fair bit more green than we might expect this time of year, so be sure to cover or bring in sensitive plants that might be getting a head start tonight.

A rain-free front will reinforce the cool weather for Saturday. After some possible frost Sunday morning, temperatures will begin to rebound into the low 60s in the afternoon under mostly sunny skies. Overall, a nice weekend ahead!

NWS frost and freeze program to resume Sunday

The National Weather Service has announced that it is restarting frost and freeze advisories beginning Sunday, March 1 as the growing season resumes across the Lowcountry. Keep an ear out for these frost and freeze alerts as March rolls on as your signal to protect plants and pets. I’ll be carrying them on Twitter as well as on this very blog, too!
