FIRST ALERT: Better rain chances, more heat and two tropical storms!

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Our rain chance will increase a bit as we head into another summer weekend! Have the rain gear close on Saturday as scattered storms and showers will pop up into the afternoon. While our rain chance is a bit lower on Sunday, it will not be rain free either, so be sure to keep an eye to sky if you have any outdoor plans. Overall, high pressure will dominate the forecast into early next week, keeping our rain chance at about 20% on Monday. We’ll steadily see an increase day by day of rain chances, mainly by the sea breeze.

The tropics are getting busy! Tropical Storm Hanna continues to move west towards the Texas coastline and will make landfall by Saturday. Hanna will not impact the Lowcountry. Tropical Storm Gonzalo also continues to move west and will pass over the Windward Islands this weekend. It is expected to weaken by early next week into a broad area of showers. There is a tropical wave forming off of the coast of Africa, which poses no current threat to the Lowcountry, but we’ll keep you posted!
