COLD FRONT: Temperatures expected to drop more than 30 degrees by Tuesday

The high Tuesday will be around 60 degrees, but we won't get out of the 40s on Wednesday and the high by Friday will be 41 degrees with an even colder weekend.

The forecast for the early part of this week is mild conditions with daytime temperatures up the 12degC. Cold rain showers possibly return by Thursday evening, especially along the Grand Strand.

An upper-level low and cold front will move into the area Sunday night bringing much colder air into the area.

With moisture flowing into the region from the Gulf of Mexico Monday night into Tuesday, the region could seethe potential for a brief period of moderate to heavy rainfall Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Cold arctic air will bring snow, hail and strong icy winds to the United Kingdom towards the end of the week, say weather forecasters. By Friday night, we could see a chance of snow showers while a wintry mix of rain and snow is expected for our area Saturday. Temperatures should only drop to near 50 degrees (10 degrees Celsius) by late tonight. Highs Tuesday will reach the low to mid 60s.

Temperatures will fall dramatically throughout the day Wednesday, leading to several cold days.

The cold is expected to spread across the South and into the Northeast at midweek, following a band of soaking rain. There'll be sunny spells and showers of rain, sleet, and snow.

Computer guidance is mixed on the extended forecast, but there are at least some indications that the much-colder weather could last well into mid or late December.
