System set to become tropical storm making its way to SC

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - An area of disturbed weather in the Gulf of Mexico has become better organized Wednesday morning as it appears to be heading towards the Lowcountry.

Most of the predicted tracks show it moving across Florida into coastal Georgia and South Carolina Thursday night and into Friday.  

Whether it takes on tropical characteristics is up in the air, but the National Hurricane Center now has a 50 percent chance of development.

The Hurricane Hunters are going to fly into the storm Wednesday afternoon to take a look around and get a better idea if and when it may develop.

Lots of tropical moisture is on the way the next few days across the Lowcountry so plan for rain.

Wednesday started with showers and storms scattered about.

More pop up thunder is ahead for the afternoon along with some heavy rain. Highs are in the mid-80s with rain chances around 70 percent.

Watch out for street flooding around the heavier storms.
