CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – There is some good news for those looking to enjoy a night of fireworks and parties on New Year’s Eve. Celebrations will be met with warm temperatures and a few clouds in the sky.
A storm system will move through the area on Thursday evening, bringing some rain and thunderstorms to parts of the Lowcountry before clearing out early Friday morning.

What about your firework plans Friday night? No rain is expected; wind will come from the west between 5 to 10 mph.
