CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Live 5 weather team is continuing to watch an area of low pressure, thunderstorms and showers over parts of the Bahamas Wednesday night which currently looks like it’s going to move closer to our coastline.

But at this point, it looks like it will affect us very minimally.

On Wednesday night, Live 5 Meteorologist Stephanie Sine said the system currently has a 20% of development in the next five days; forecasters say there is a 0 percent chance of formation in the next 48 hours.

“It really shouldn’t affect the Lowcountry, maybe just an increase of moisture,” Sine said.

That increase of moisture will equal a higher rain chance throughout the weekend to early next week with warm and muggy temperatures.

Slow development expected for system

National Hurricane Center officials say some slow development is possible late this week as the system drifts west-northward toward the Florida peninsula.

“The system is expected to move generally northward near the southeast coast of the United States and adjacent waters by the end of the week,” NHC officials said.
