Hi everyone, I’m Shannon Frazer and I’ll be the editor of the day on Bluecoast Live today.
Today’s weather will be quite wacky, so pack your umbrellas, shorts, AND winter coats. According to the National Weather Service, today’s forecast will be windy, with showers and thunderstorms likely in until midday. Highs in the mid 70s. Tonight will turn breezier and colder, with more showers and thunderstorms this evening and a chance of rain showers after midnight. Lows will drop to the upper 30s.
