Winter temperatures returning to the Midlands

Lows next week may fall into the middle 20s.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — The last couple of days have been very warm, but weather changes are on the horizon.

Some rain moved across the Midlands this morning, but the afternoon hours have been mostly sunny and mild.

Friday will start off cold with lows in the middle to upper 30s. It has been so warm lately, this will likely feel even cooler since we have not had temperatures in the 30s for a while.
