Bitter cold conditions this morning will warm into the upper 40s along the Grand Strand but struggle to reach the upper 30s/low 40s Inland. Cold air will remain across the Pee Dee and border belt as an approaching area of low pressure increases the rain chances to the area. This low will bring the chance for mainly rain showers for the Grand Strand late in the afternoon with temperatures well above freezing. While most Inland locations will see a cold rain. The cold air locked at the surface and the onset of moisture from the approaching low will bring an increased chance for sleet or freezing rain. While major issues are not expected with ice accumulations on trees and powerlines, bridges and overpasses may become slippery in spots along the Border Belt and into NC. This will mainly be during the afternoon and evening with the showers ending around midnight.
High pressure will push in for the weekend keeping the area cold despite seeing sunny skies. This high will push off of the coast early next week bringing a warm flow back to the area. A nice warm up will move in for the first half of next week with highs in the upper 60s.
Today: Increasing clouds, chilly. Grand strand few showers late. Pee Dee & Border belt may see sleet mixed with rain showers turning to rain showers later in the afternoon then turning to a little freezing rain late this evening along the Border belt. Slippery spots on bridges/overpasses possible along the Border Belt. Highs-Grand Strand: Upper 40s, Inland: Low/Mid 40s.
Tonight: Rain ends with clearing after midnight. Lows: Grand Strand: Upper 30s, Inland: Low 30s.
Saturday: Cold start will warm near seasonal averages with mostly sunny skies. Highs-Low/Mid 50s.
Sunday: Bitter cold start will keep highs below average despite sunny skies. Highs-Mid/Uper 40s.
