Friday and the weekend: Rain tapers off, cool temperatures remain

/ January 7, 2021 at 9:49 PM

We have a cool and quiet weekend ahead in the Lowcountry. Tonight’s rain will exit the area early Friday morning as a cold front swings through the area, but the storm system’s parent upper low will continue to lumber through North Carolina, potentially spawning scattered showers as the day goes on in our neck of the woods. Rain chances will decrease even further after sunset Friday, leading to a dry weekend.

Temperatures will remain cooler than January normals throughout the weekend, with mid-50s the norm as we sit between the departing low pressure system and high pressure in the upper Midwest. Relatively dry air will keep cloud cover generally thin, especially on Sunday.

Our next storm system arrives Monday as another upper low ushers through a front to start the week.
