Powerful Wednesday morning storms help lessen evening threat

Powerful thunderstorms late Wednesday morning helped lessen the threat for severe weather later in the afternoon.

Meteorologist Brad Miller said the storms helped stabilize the atmosphere therefore reducing the threat.

A slow-moving storm front made its way across the southeast from Alabama Wednesday morning and the initial band of the system produced dynamic thunderstorms and periods of heavy rain. The system spawned a series of deadly tornadoes that claimed nearly three dozen lives.

A flood advisory for portions of Dorchester, Charleston, Colleton and Dorchester counties ended at 12:15p.m.

The area had thousands of people without power briefly during the height of the morning storms.

The chance of rain and storms is expected to continue through Wednesday evening, but none are expected to be severe. Isolated showers are possible overnight.
