Temperatures will remain on the cold/cool side through the morning hours if you plan to head to a voting location. Remember, with social distancing, lines are expected to be longer and those lines will be outside at many polling spots. If you’re headed to vote, you’ll want to grab that jacket, your cup of coffee and don’t forget your photo ID!

This afternoon will feature warmer temperatures than yesterday and should lead to an amazing crowd at the polling locations. Look for highs to reach the mid 60s both in Florence and in Myrtle Beach this afternoon under mostly sunny skies. As those polls close, temperatures will be in the lower 50s inland and the mid 50s on the beaches.
