FIRST ALERT FORECAST: More showers, less widespread

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Lowcountry rain and thunderstorms are expected to be less widespread Wednesday afternoon than on Tuesday, but potentially just as heavy.

A humid air mass will drop rain over parts of the Lowcountry as temperatures reach the 90-degree mark, according to Live 5 Meteorologist Justin Lock.

The storms are expected to begin forming inland after 2 p.m. causing the threat of more downpours and localized flooding.

Lock says 5.7 inches of rain have already been recorded for the month so far, an amount greater than is typically recorded all month long. That amount puts the Lowcountry more than three inches above normal for the year.

Stay weather alert throughout the afternoon by keeping an eye on the Live 5 First Warning Weather app, available by texting APP to 84355.
