Colder Pattern Likely To Bring Frost In Parts Of South Carolina Early Next Week
The fall season can bring it all in the Palmetto State: just days after a tropical storm brought strong winds to the state, a cooler change is likely to bring frost to areas mainly west of I-95 by early next week.
A cold front quickly followed behind the departure of Tropical Storm Zeta late Thursday. Temperatures were 15 to 25 degrees colder behind the front Friday morning compared to Thursday morning. Patchy frost is possible over parts of the Upstate early Saturday morning, especially west of Interstate 85, but some wind is likely to prevent a widespread frost.
A stronger cold front is on track to swing through the state late Sunday. Even colder temperatures behind the front are likely to lead to a frost or light freeze early next week, especially west of Interstate 95. Some frost is possible Monday morning in parts of the Upstate, but lighter winds and clear skies make a widespread frost more likely on Tuesday morning in the Upstate. It is becoming increasingly likely frost will occur in the Midlands and Pee Dee regions, as well, on Tuesday morning.
Milder temperatures are forecast from Wednesday through Friday of next week, which should reduce or eliminate the risk of frosty conditions.
