Coolest day of the week for Tuesday, then we warm back up

/ November 23, 2020 at 9:11 PM

Cool high pressure will be in control of Tuesday’s weather, with highs topping out in the low to mid-60s across the area under mostly sunny skies. A breeze out of the east will keep it feeling a little more brisk during the day as well. Overall, not too shabby with temperatures running a touch below normal.

Clouds will be on the increase Tuesday evening into Wednesday as our next storm system approaches the area, first bringing a warmup and then possibly some Thanksgiving rain.

Watch for rain if you’re thinking about outdoor Thanksgiving

Looking ahead to the latter part of the week, we find a warming trend with highs running in the low-to-mid-70s. A cold front will approach the area late Wednesday into Thanksgiving Day, with a chance of showers possibly as early as Wednesday evening.

We’ll be dodging a few showers and maybe even a thunderstorm or two during the day Thursday as the cold front moves closer to the Lowcountry. If your Thanksgiving plans include being outdoors to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, be alert to the possibility that you may need to mask up and head indoors at times.

The cold front will clear the area by Friday with a slightly less humid airmass behind it, but temperatures should still rise to the mid-70s during the day under partly cloudy skies. Another storm system will swing into the area over the weekend, bringing back shower chances through early next week.
