The front will move through mostly dry, but some stray showers are possible at night. Friday will be mostly sunny. The cold front will be off shore by tomorrow morning. Skies will clear up early, and highs will find the mid 50s.
The weekend will begin with partly sunny conditions on Saturday, with temperatures dropping into the low 50s as cloud cover increases throughout the day. Saturday night we can expect temperatures along the Grand Strand in the 40s with inland sitting in the mid-30s.
