Another flood advisory tonight for Charleston

With direct sunlight bouncing off the right side of the moon and Earth’s shadow dimming the left, a lunar eclipse nears totality in the cloudy skies around 10 p.m. Sunday over Mount Pleasant.

Downtown Charleston streets could flood again tonight, according to the National Weather Service.

The weather service has a coastal flood advisory from 7 to 11 p.m. The tide is expected to peak between 7.8 and 8.0 feet between 9 and 9:15 p.m.

The tide was at the same level this morning and flooded streets in Charleston and Mount Pleasant. The tide is so high because the moon is unusually close to the earth.

Today should be cloudy, with a high near 81 and a 30 percent chance of afternoon showers, according to the weather service.

The chance of rain is in the forecast through much of the week, but the weekend looks sunny.

Tuesday: Cloudy, high near 81, 40 percent chance of rain.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy, high near 81, 50 percent chance of rain, possibly heavy.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy, high near 76, 40 percent chance of rain.

Friday: Partly sunny, high near 75.

Saturday: Partly sunny, high near 77.

Sunday: Partly sunny, high near 78.
