CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A flash flood watch remains in effect until midnight for Beaufort, Williamsburg and Georgetown counties. The flash flood watch has been cancelled for Charleston, Colleton and Berkeley counties.

Weather officials said numerous to widespread showers and thunderstorms with torrential rainfall would hit portions of Southeast South Carolina and Southeast Georgia Tuesday afternoon into the evening.

Live 5 News Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh said showers and thunderstorms are still possible into tonight and again on Wednesday.

“Widespread flooding is not anticipated at this time but some localized flooding is always possible with slow moving storms that develop,” Walsh said.

On Wednesday, sun and clouds will be bringing temperatures back into the lower 80s and it will still be humid.

“On Thursday more showers are possible as upper energy mixes with plenty of moisture and the frontal boundary close by,” Walsh said. “Look for a transition toward a more typical summer pattern with more sun and less rain over the weekend.”
