11-10-17: Freeze Warning issued for Saturday morning for parts of our viewing area
A strong cold front will sweep across the eastern U.S. Friday afternoon and night.
Ahead of the front, expect lots of sunshine and temperatures rising into the low- mid 60s. Friday night, cold air pours into the Carolinas.
By daybreak Saturday, temperatures inland will flirt with 32° while the wind stirs enough to keep temperatures in the mid-30s along the coast.
The air coming in is the coldest air of the season and with temperatures falling to near freezing, a Freezing Warning has been issued for many inland counties for Saturday morning.
This includes Scotland, Robeson, Marlboro, Dillon, Darlington, Florence, and Marion counties. Scotland County's warning goes into effect at midnight with 2 a.m. for all other counties. This warning expires for everyone at 9am.
This is not unusual since the average date of the first fall freeze is usually the first week of November inland and the second week of November along the coast. Because the wind stirs and the air is dry, any frost will be light.
Sunshine will allow temperatures to rise into the mid-50s on Saturday. Even warmer weather is expected Sunday with more clouds. Look for temperatures to peak in the low to mid-60s.
