Arctic front arrives today with rain, frigid temps

Weather Forecasts

Another arctic front is pushing through the area, this one is even colder than the weekends front. Rain showers will continue to move across the Pee Dee and towards the coast this afternoon. Temperatures at the coast have warmed into the 70s, but inland temperatures are already dropping, drastically dropping into the 30s by 7pm.

The front will push offshore and clear out by late night. Some of the coldest air of the season will arrive by Wednesday morning. Temperatures inland are expected to drop 25-27 and at the coast near 30. But the feel like temperatures will be in the teens come Wednesday morning.

A freeze watch is in place from 2am – 9am for coastal Horry and Georgetown counties. This will end the growing season for coastal sections if we drop below freezing. Arctic high pressure will build in behind and temperatures will struggle in the mid to upper 40s Wednesday afternoon.

A storm system to the south will develop and move north. Showers are possible Friday and into Saturday, especially along the coast. The system will move north Sunday morning and we’ll dry out for the second half of the weekend.

Tonight: Clearing, cold and breezy. 25-27 inland, 30-31 beaches Wind chill in the teens.
