Freeze Warning issued for Grand Strand

An arctic airmass will move in overnight dropping temperatures across the area into the 30s with many locations below freezing. A Freeze Warning has been issued for the coastal areas of the Grand Strand from 3am to 8am.

During this time temperatures are forecast to be around or below freezing for several hours. This could potentially have impacts on sensitive vegetation, field crops, as well as plants or bushes. Take necessary precautions to protect them.

Also make sure you bring your pets inside or give them a warm place to stay to get out of the cold. They get cold just like you and I. Make sure to check on their water that it has not frozen over.

While areas Inland are forecast to drop below freezing overnight, a freeze warning has not been issued. This is due to temperatures having already dropped below freezing this Fall and the growing season has come to an end.

Regardless of whether you are under a freezing warning or not, it will still be bitter cold with strong Northerly winds. These winds will gust over 30mph and put the wind chill(what it feels like on your bare skin) temperature into the 20s by daybreak.
