A brief check of the area weather stations confirms yet another cold morning in the Charleston area. Inland areas (Summerville, North Charleston) are just barely bouncing off 33 degrees; West Ashley and Mount Pleasant are technically a bit warmer, but the changes from 33 to around 35 aren’t much. ;) Downtown and James Island, closer to water, are a bit warmer (Downtown will typically run 5-7 degrees warmer thanks to the water); as of 7:49am, Downtown just reached a comparatively balmy 40 degrees (at the College of Charleston weather station).
Highs will top out around 60-62 today, making it more like January than October. Temperatures will slowly begin to recover tomorrow, and we should see upper 60s for Halloween. Stay warm out there!
