First cold blast of season coming to SC

October 23, 2013 

The first really cold weather of the season might prompt Midlands residents to turn on their heat, but temperatures probably won’t to get down to plant-harming levels in the Columbia area.

The National Weather Service issued a frost advisory Wednesday night for the northwestern Midlands – as far south as Newberry and Fairfield counties. Temperatures could hit the upper 30s in those areas early Thursday.

Another cold front is coming through Friday night, with temperatures a degree or two colder. On Wednesday, forecasters said it was too early to know if conditions early Saturday would merit frost or freeze warnings in the Columbia area.

The afternoon highs are forecast in the 60s throughout the period.
