Beaufort's cold weather snap finally breaking

Cold temperatures are the name of the game in Beaufort today.

The temperature hit a low of 52 degrees overnight at the Marine Corps Air Station, a few degrees above the record low temperature of 45 degrees on October 6th, set back in 1964. The high for today is only expected to reach 74 degrees.

But if you've been waiting for the cold snap to end, know it's almost over. While we're due to dip down to 47 tonight, we should be back at more seasonable highs/lows of 80/58 by Thursday and slightly warming through the weekend, and sunny throughout.

Since the end of September we've slid from trending on the warm side to the cold; here's a plot of temperatures from this and last month in Charleston (the closest available.) Bars extend between the day's high and low, where we hit red or blue we're out of the normals.

And it's sounding like we'll be warmer through early next week when another cold front is due to blow through.
