CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - High pressure will be building into the Lowcountry as we head into the middle of the week. A tropical wave is forecast to cross Florida and go into the Gulf of Mexico bringing increased moisture to the area this weekend which means a better chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Look for a mix of sun and clouds with some pop-up showers or thunderstorms possible Wednesday afternoon. The chance of rain is only 20%. Thursday and Friday look nice but muggy with sunshine and highs in the upper 80′s. Look for a better chance of showers and thunderstorms over the weekend.
Watching a couple of waves in the Atlantic and Post Tropical Storm Gabrielle. Gabrielle is no factor for us and now post tropical. A tropical wave will head towards Florida and the Gulf of Mexico this weekend with a 30% chance for development. The other two waves are weak and only have a 20% chance to develop. We will keep an eye on the tropics for you everyday.
