Rest of the work week: Quieter, warmer

/ May 14, 2024 at 8:08 PM

Expect generally quieter but warmer conditions for the second half of the work week as high pressure gives us a respite before another unsettled period commences Saturday.

Wednesday will feature a mix of clouds and sun that’ll help drive temperatures into the mid-80s in the afternoon after a start near 70°. A few showers and thunderstorms will be possible in the afternoon and early evening as a weak front moves through the area, and a strong wind gust or two can’t be ruled out in the stronger storms.

High pressure is the main weather driver on Thursday, yielding a fairly quiet and warm day across the Lowcountry. We’ll start the day in the mid-to-upper 60s, warming to the mid-to-upper 80s in the afternoon with just some passing clouds from time to time. Friday should remain mostly quiet with temperatures once again starting in the mid-60s before yielding to mid-80s in the afternoon. High pressure will be departing ahead of our next disturbance, and there’s still some question as to how soon showers and thunderstorms arrive in the area as a result. So, for now, there’s a slight chance we could see some activity Friday night, but it’s more likely that unsettled weather holds off until Saturday.
