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

The strong sunshine and rising temperatures helped clear much ice and snow especially from the major roads this afternoon, however, a return to very cold temperatures tonight will refreeze anything remaining wet.   

Temperatures are forecasted to fall below freezing at approximately 7 PM tonight.   Driving conditions will become very hazardous tonight and Friday morning.    Please stay off the roads if possible.

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.
