Showers today, slight chance of t-storms, flash flood watch continues
A flash flood watch issued by the National Weather Service remains in effect until this evening.
Today, we can expect showers with a slight chance of thundertorms. Rain may be heavy at times. Highs will be in the lower 80s, with north winds 5 to 10 mph and gusts of up to 20 mph. The winds will become west this afternoon.
The chance of rain today is 90 percent as tropical moisture continues to stream across a front that is stalled over Georgia and the Carolinas.
Scattered to numerous showers and a few thunderstorms with torrential downpours are expected today.
The flood watch, which means conditions are such that flash flooding might occur, is because all the rain during the past few days has saturated the ground and filled urban drainage systems. Widespread rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches are possible, with localized higher amounts.
Flash flooding could develop at any time if heavy rainfall repeatedly moves across the same location. Low lying coastal areas could flood quickly,
especially if heavy rain occurs around high tide.
The upcoming high tides in the Lowcountry will be between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. afternoon.
Tonight should be cloudy. Showers are likely with a slight chance of thunderstorms in the evening. There’s a chance of showers after midnight. Lows should be in the lower 70s, with west winds 5 to 10 mph. The chance of rain tonight is 70 percent.
Sunday should be mostly cloudy with a chance of showers, and a slight chance of thunderstorms. Highs in the mid 80s, with northeast winds around 5 mph, becoming southeast in the afternoon. The chance of rain Sunday is 50 percent.
