Much cooler, breezy Thursday

A cold front moved through Wednesday night with very strong winds. These winds even caused some damage and knocked down a tree onto a house and truck in Conway. Video here. A burn ban is in place for Horry County through Saturday morning due to the dry conditions and wind.

As the front pushes away, high pressure will slowly build East during Thursday bringing sunny skies back to the area along with unseasonably cool conditions. Gusty winds will remain through the afternoon. Gusts over 30mph will be possible as the colder air pushes in. Afternoon temperatures will struggle to reach 50° along the border and low 50s Inland and the Grand Strand.

Thursday night into Friday morning the winds will diminish and temps will drop below freezing area wide. After starting in the mid to upper 20s for most areas, sunny skies will help the temps rebound into the upper 50s to low 60s.

The weekend will see more clouds and the chance for rain. Most of Saturday will remain dry, but rain chances are on the rise in the evening Saturday though Sunday night as a system moves through. High temperatures will still reach the 60s all weekend long.

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.
