Winter Weather Release 5 

January 5, 2018

 

Town offices are closed today and will open for regular business Monday at 9 AM. The Town remains at OPCON 3.

The sunshine and rising temperatures helped clear much ice and snow yesterday and will continue to do so this afternoon.  A return to very cold temperatures tonight will refreeze anything remaining wet.

Please avoid travel tonight and early Saturday morning if possible.   There will likely be patches of ice on many James Island roads.  

All bridges and roads are open this afternoon. All the major bridges on James Island are under City of Charleston jurisdiction and they have a very helpful website for road and bridge closings.
