CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The National Weather Service canceled a flash flood watch for four Lowcountry counties Friday afternoon.

The watch had been in effect until 6 p.m. for Charleston, Coastal Colleton, Beaufort and Jasper Counties, but shortly after 1 p.m., that watch was called off.

Earlier Friday morning, a watch for Berkeley, Dorchester and inland Colleton Counties was also canceled.

The watch was initially set as a cold front had the potential to bring periods of heavy rain into the early afternoon across the Lowcountry. That rainfall was initially expected to cause flooding of low-lying, poor-drainage areas.
