It's November beach weather — the Lowcountry has a chance to break a record high temperature today.
The National Weather Service, Charleston, is calling for a high of 81 degrees; the current high record is 83, set in 1993, 1978 and 1958.
"It'll be close," said weather service meteorologist Vern Beaver. And the warm spell will be broken up Wednesday night in the usual summer fashion — with thundershowers, as stormy weather moves in from the deep south. Lows in the 60s tonight, followed by highs in the upper 70s on Wednesday. The chance for rain is 60 percent, the weather service forecasts.
The early patchy fog today should burn off by midmorning.
