The blistering cold that beset the Lowcountry this week and kept ice and snow from Wednesday's winter storm on the ground, creating unsafe driving conditions, will be with us a little longer, the National Weather Service reports. The high for Saturday is 26 with wind chills as low as -1 at night.

Today will see partly sunny skies, with a high near 27, along with a light and variable wind becoming northeast around 6 miles per hour in the afternoon.

Humidity will reach lows in the high 30 percent range Saturday and Sunday afternoon, but by Monday even lows should be in the 70s through the end of the forecast on Friday. The overnight low should be near 30 degrees. The expected high will be around 34.
