NWS issues thunderstorm watch for Lowcountry

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The National Weather Service has issued a thunderstorm watch for much of the Lowcountry that extends until 9 p.m. Friday as a result of a cold front dipping into the area.

A cold front located across the upstate of South Carolina will sag towards the Lowcountry as the weekend kicks off.

As this front bumps into the hot and humid air mass already in place, severe weather will become a possibility into Friday night.  Thunderstorms will continue to develop across the Lowcountry late Friday afternoon and will continue well into the evening. 

Some of the storms will produce heavy rain, frequent lightning, and damaging winds could be a possibility. Storms should wind down by midnight, then skies will become partly cloudy with some patchy fog.  Lows will be in the low to mid-70's. 

It will remain hazy and humid into the weekend as the front stalls across the Lowcountry and washes out. There will still be a decent chance for storm development both Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Highs both days will be in the low 90's with overnight lows remaining in the 70's.
