Editor's note: This story will be regularly updated with information from the Upstate as Tropical Storm Ian moves over South Carolina.

Sept. 30, 8:45 p.m. update:

The effects of Hurricane Ian had diminished in the Upstate by late in the day Sept. 30, with cloudy skies and light rain likely remaining for much of the weekend.

The storm hit the South Carolina coast at Georgetown just after 2 p.m. and headed north between Charlotte and Raleigh.

For the Upstate, a wind advisory remained in effect until 8 a.m. on Oct. 1. But for most of the region, especially the southern and western portions, winds had subsided by the late afternoon. While there were small pockets of power outages throughout the day and into the night, there were no widespread issues in the region.

Most of the Upstate is expected to receive less than two inches of rain in total from the system. That amount could vary widely, with areas further east receiving higher rainfall while western areas may receive only trace amounts.

Clouds and a 30 percent chance of rain are expected through the weekend.
