If you just fetched the newspaper, you already know. If you’re popping up online, take a look outside at daylight.

And maybe just wave goodbye to Tropical Storm Andrea.

The worst of the wind and rain was expected between midnight and daybreak today, the National Weather Service, Charleston, said Thursday night.

The eye — or what’s left of it — was expected to pass over or near Charleston at 6 a.m., with the strongest wind and rain to the east and north, offshore.

“Soggy night and morning commute for Charleston,” said Mark Malsick, of the S.C. Climate Office, Thursday night.

So it just might be over.

Here’s what to expect for the morning commute:


Tapering off. A cumulative 3-5 inches overnight, contributing to spot and low-lying-street flooding.


Still gusty but dying down. By 8 a.m., 15-25 mph.


Open. No cautions.


High tide is at 7:48 a.m. and could contribute to local flooding.
