Rain expected to douse Lowcountry for most of Wednesday

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Clouds rapidly returned to the Lowcountry Wednesday and before long they will be producing a good bit of rainfall.

Temperatures started off in the mid 50's Wednesday and things stayed dry, but by late morning and the lunch hour, a lot of rain is expected to move in from the west ahead of an approaching storm system.

Wet weather will be widespread for most of Wednesday afternoon as highs struggle to reach the upper 60's. Rain chances are at 100 percent. Some of the rain could be heavy at times and lead to some street flooding, but severe weather is not expected.

Rain will continue into the evening and night Wednesday, but should begin to taper off around 11 p.m. Clouds will linger overnight and some patchy fog will pop up by Thursday morning.

Low temperatures will fall back into the lower 50's overnight and there is a continued chance of more scattered showers and thunderstorms Thursday, finally ending by Friday morning.
