As of early Tuesday morning, there are no active watches or warnings for the Lowcountry.

But the risk for severe thunderstorms will be the greatest between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m., mainly along and east of the I-95 corridor, including the Charleston area.

Locally heavy rainfall could produce another day of minor flooding in low-lying and poor drainage areas.

The risk for flooding will be highest along the coast around the evening high tide, especially in downtown Charleston.

Live 5 Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh says much cooler, drier air will move in on Wednesday.
