A line of strong showers and thunderstorms moving towards the Lowcountry could produce potentially dangerous weather in the overnight hours into Tuesday morning.

As of 11 p.m., no watches or warnings were in effect, Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh said, but he said he wouldn't rule out the possibility that some could be issued.

The storms will most likely be over portions of the Lowcountry between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. Tuesday. 

"We could be looking at gusty winds up to 50 to 60 mph as the line moves though," Walsh said. "There's a low risk for an isolated tornado, but we can't rule out the possibility."

Heavy rainfall is likely, but it is not expected to last long as the line moves east rapidly.
