An Arctic front moved through Monday ushering in bitterly cold conditions to the Carolinas. The front will remain stalled just off of the coast through the end of the week. This will keep cloudy skies around and unseasonably cool conditions. While moisture will be lacking across the area Tuesday, some patchy freezing drizzle will be possible early in the morning until temps warm above freezing. Then a little bit of drizzle can't be ruled out Tuesday afternoon. Major icing issues are not expected, but a few slick spots on bridges/overpasses can't be ruled out. Temps will slowly reach the upper 30s, then remain just above freezing through the night. A few areas along the border may dip to freezing. With the cold, plus a bit of drizzle possible, a few areas along the NC/SC border may see a light ice glace by early Wednesday morning.
Better chances for rain will be around at times for Wednesday, Thursday and early Friday as a series of disturbances move up the stalled front. 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. Temps will struggle to reach 50 on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. Then slowly reach the mid 50s on Friday with a little more sun emerging by Friday afternoon.
Much warmer and drier conditions are in store for the weekend. Highs will be in the mid to upper 60s Saturday and even up to 70 for a few Inland locations on Sunday. Sunny skies will finally return for Saturday with more clouds, but dry conditions on Sunday as another front moves in late.
Tuesday:Cloudy, cold and breezy with the slight chance for drizzle.. Highs-Mid/Upper 30s, a few coastal areas may hit 40.
Tonight: Cloudy, cold, and breezy with the chance for a few showers near daybreak. Most areas will remain above freezing, but areas along the border may drop to freezing. A light glaze of ice cannot be ruled out in these areas. Lows: Grand Strand: Mid 30s, Inland: Low/mid 30s
Wednesday: Cloudy with the chance for rain. Highs-Upper 40s to around 50.
Thursday: Periods of rain, cloudy and cool. Highs-Grand Strand:Upper 40s, Inland: Mid 40s
