CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The bulk of the rainfall that caused flooded roads and prompted one county to dismiss school early moved out of the area Monday evening. 

Some scattered, light showers are possible Tuesday morning, but things will grow dryer and warmer into the upper 70s this afternoon, Meteorologist Joey Sovine says. 

A flash flood watch expired for Charleston and Berkeley counties Monday evening.

Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh says scattered showers, leftovers from the storm system that passed through Monday morning, are possible into the overnight hours.

By Monday morning, officials said the Andrews area received 7.5 inches of rain and was expected to receive another three inches before the weather system passed. As a result, Georgetown County temporarily opened a shelter and moved to Operating Condition 4. The county also dismissed schools Monday at 12:30 p.m. over concerns about potentially flooded roads.

Several road closures due to flooding were reported in Charleston County Monday morning.
