Cold tonight, downright frigid tomorrow night

While it's supposed to get to a chilly 28 tonight, we're supposed to hit 19 degrees on Friday night as arctic pressure pushes into the region.

With the wind chill it could dip down to 12 in Charleston.


Record lows for those days are around 17 degrees.

Make sure to drip the faucets, bring the pets in, check the heaters, and cover the plants. Here's a whole slew of tips from the City of Charleston.

Oh, and go grab the whole forecast at the National Weather Service. My favorite line from their weather warning: "People should prepare now for these bitterly cold temperatures."
