Showers, Storms Dampen Friday Afternoon

A cold front sweeps through the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry with afternoon rain, and a few storms, ahead of a beautiful weekend.

Widespread, locally dense, fog is occurring this morning. Visibility may be reduced to near zero in spots through the morning commute. Plan an extra few minutes to insure an on-time destination arrival. Fog is forecast to lift by mid-morning.

Fog is replaced by a partly to mostly cloudy sky later in the morning and afternoon as we watch a band of rain approach our region from middle Georgia. Ahead of the rain, temperatures warm into the mid and upper 70s.

Showers and thunderstorms should enter far-inland communities between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.; approaching the I-95 corridor between 1 and 3 p.m. and the last bit of rain pushes offshore between 5 and 6 p.m.

The risk of severe weather is very low today, but a couple storms will produce breezy winds and frequent lightning, in addition to heavy rain.

Keep an eye on the WTOC Weather App through the afternoon and evening – especially if you have Friday plans.

The good news?

We’re being treated to cooler, sunnier weather this weekend. It’s going to be gorgeous!

Have a great Friday,
