Stubborn cloud cover should start to clear out later today; remains chilly until then

Cloud cover and patches of drizzle continue over the Charleston area this morning as we remain in the low 40s. Temperatures remain forecast to climb into the mid-50s later this afternoon as sunshine breaks through, but if the low-level cloud deck is a little more stubborn, it wouldn’t shock me to see us barely breach 50° today. There are some signs in short-term guidance that appreciable clearing won’t really begin to happen until after sunset, which would definitely put a cap on how warm it could get. Otherwise, no weather concerns for today (unless you are a general aviator who is not yet instrument-rated, anyway).
