CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A coastal flood advisory for Charleston, Beaufort and Colleton counties has been cancelled.

The National Weather Service had issued the advisory from 4 p.m. through 10 p.m.

A combination of rain and high tide still could cause some flooding in the Lowcountry this week.

Charles Francis, Public Information Officer for the Charleston Police Department, says the flood advisories will likely continue through Sunday.

Area tides have reached levels higher than predicted every day since May 31.

On Thursday, the highest tides were expected at 6:28 p.m. in Charleston and around 7:46 p.m. in Beaufort.

Saturday's evening high tide around 8:20 p.m. may to be the highest this week, as predictions are calling for close to an eight-foot tide.

Live 5 Meteorologist Joey Sovine reports a 30 percent percent chance of rain Saturday. Sunday has a greater chance of rain, at 40 percent.

Francis says tides should start to lower in level by then.
