CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Today is a First Alert Weather Day as we track Tropical Depression Four approaching the coast of South Carolina and Georgia. This area of low pressure is most likely to move onshore between Beaufort and Charleston. Bands of scattered showers and downpours will continue into this evening. In fact, it won’t be raining the whole time and some sunshine is expected. It will also be a bit breezy today, especially near the coast, and there is a high risk of rip currents at our beaches. Please avoid entering the water! Winds could gust up to 40 mph at times, especially along the coast. Rainfall totals will generally be less than .5″ for most folks but a few isolated spots may exceed 1″ before the day is over. This storm system will move through quickly but a few showers may linger overnight and into early tomorrow morning. The rest of the week looks like a typical June/July week with a mix of sun and clouds and a few showers and storms each day. Highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees.
