The week is going to start off cooler than normal and end warmer than normal, according to Charleston-based National Weather Service Meteorologist Emily Timte.
A cold front that came through Saturday brought some cooler temperatures expected to last through the first half of the week, Timte said Sunday morning.
Things should starting warming up on Thanksgiving Day with temperatures in the mid 70s and an anticipated high of 75, Timte said. There is no precipitation in the forecast this week.
Black Friday shoppers might need a jacket Thursday night and early Friday morning with “cool, but not too bad” overnight temperatures in the mid 40s, but Friday will warm up for anyone out and about, with an expected high of 70, Timte said.
Overall, things are looking “pretty quiet” for Beaufort and Jasper counties, Timte said, with one exception. A freeze watch is set for inland Jasper County on Sunday night where temperatures might reach a low of 32.
No frost is expected Sunday night, as it’s too dry, Timte said. The first freeze for inland Jasper County could be right on schedule — around mid-November. The coastal side of Jasper and Beaufort counties don’t usually see the first freeze until the middle of December.
