A cold front moving across the state is expected to bring freezing temperatures to the Lowcountry tonight.

The cold comes on the heels of a morning-long tornado watch for the tri-county area on Monday.

A funnel cloud was reported Monday morning over the town of Hollywood but never touched ground, according to the National Weather Service in Charleston. A second funnel cloud was reported second-hand over Dorchester Road, officials said. The tornado watch was called off around noon Monday.

Today's highs are expected to be in the mid-50s, well below the normal temperatures for this time of the year, Meteorologist Bob Bright said. The lows are expected to be around 32 degrees in North Charleston and as low as the upper 20s for outlying areas, while temperatures are expected to be just above freezing around Charleston.

Winds are expected to reach 20 to 30 mph today.
