Forecasters are warning of severe weather Sunday night and Monday morning, including thunderstorms, damaging winds and some hail. Tornadoes are also possible.

The National Weather Service in Charleston said the worst of the bad weather is expected between daybreak and early afternoon on Monday as a cold front moves through southeast South Carolina. The primary threats are damaging winds, isolated tornadoes and possible large hail, officials said. 

Southern South Carolina could see a large tornado as a result of the severe weather, according to officials.

The timing of the cold front is still uncertain at this point. Thunderstorms and strong winds could begin Sunday night, but widespread hazardous weather is not predicted to occur until Monday.

Winds may be in excess of 70 miles per hour, officials warned, and strong tornadoes are possible. Most of the severe weather is expected between 6 a.m. and noon Monday.
