CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Thunderstorms dropped 2-3 inches of rain and created standing water on some roads Tuesday.

Roads near homes in Taylor Plantation in southern Dorchester County and other parts of the Lowcountry were hit hard by the flooding.

A flash flood warning was issued for parts of Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester Counties earlier in the day, but has since expired.

A severe thunderstorm watch was also issued, but has since expired.

Storms diminish after dinner, but heavy rainfall, gusty winds and dangerous lightning struck some areas hard. Patchy fog should develop later Tuesday night.

Wednesday's forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies with more showers and thunderstorms as a weak cold front moves east. By the weekend, the skies should clear with less shower activity.
