Another round of record breaking cold air settled in for Wednesday morning. Morning temps dropped to 15 in Florence and 21 in Myrtle Beach. This broke the former record of 17(1970) in Florence and 23(1951) in Myrtle Beach.
The Arctic airmass that has gripped most of the U.S. will weaken its grip on the Carolinas over the next few days. High pressure will push off of the East Coast later tonight. Sunny skies will remain in the forecast Wednesday and the area will finally get above freezing and warm into the low 40s. Clouds will increase overnight, but lows will still drop below freezing, especially Inland.
A weak coastal trough and a warm front will move in for Thursday and Friday increasing clouds and the slight chance for a few showers. Temperatures will be on the rise, but the inland areas will be running about 5 - 10 degrees cooler than the coast.
Saturday a cold front will approach. This will bring a few scattered showers early with the better chance for rain in the afternoon through Sunday morning. Soaking rain will be possible.. You can always track the rain on First Alert Live Doppler 15000 or if you have an iPhone or Android make sure you download or app. Temperatures will warm to around 70 all weekend.
