Severe weather causes accidents, traffic delays

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The drive home for some motorists took longer than usual Wednesday afternoon due to severe weather and accidents.

Multiple factors led to clogged up traffic all along I-526. The heavy traffic started as severe weather caused visibility issues.

There were numerous accidents on other roads throughout the Lowcountry that caused delays during the afternoon commute.

A cold front is moving east with a line of showers and thunderstorms at around 30 mph. Look for some heavy rainfall, gusty winds and dangerous lightning between now and after dinner.
