CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The chance of heavy rains over the Charleston area Monday afternoon could produce flooding during high tide.

High tide is expected at 3 p.m., according to Live 5 Meteorologist Joey Sovine.

He said widespread flooding is not likely, but localized flooding, especially in flood-prone areas of downtown Charleston, could be affected if heavy rain coincides with high tide.

The forecast calls for off-and-on showers into the evening, and thunder and lightning may accompany occasional downpours, he said.

At 11:45 a.m., no flood advisories had been declared for the Tri-County area.
