FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Coastal flooding, heavy rain expected this morning

VIDEO: Sun. First Alert Weather

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Heavy rain continues this morning before we begin to clear into the early afternoon. Our main concern will be around high tide at 9:07 this morning as coastal areas could see 1-2 feet of saltwater inundation – a Coastal Flood Warning is in effect through noon as rain continues.

After our flood threat comes to an end, the area of low pressure that has impacted the southeast will move off the coastline and heavy rain will come to an end. We’ll see a mostly dry afternoon with a gusty and cold wind with dropping temperatures into the 40’s and 30’s. We could see a few leftover showers on Monday as wrap around moisture continues to move into the area. We’ll stay dry through the middle of the week, but our next weather maker will move rain back into the area on Friday.

TONIGHT: Windy and cold, scat’d light shower possible, LOW: 38.

MONDAY: Still cloudy with the chance of showers, HIGH: 45, LOW: 35.

TUESDAY: Partly sunny, HIGH: 52, LOW: 32.

WEDNESDAY: Sunny and a bit warmer, HIGH: 57, LOW: 38.
