It's about time.
After seeing a winter with two ice storms and some frigid temperatures, Charleston-area residents can expect mild and tame weather for the entire week ahead, according to the local National Weather Service station.
Monday will kick off the week with highs in the mid-70s, the forecast stated.
Meteorologists anticipate a 30 percent chance of rain in the form of fleeting showers and thunderstorms Tuesday night. The main threat will pass by 1 a.m. Wednesday, the meteorologists said.
