CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The National Weather Service has cancelled a flash flood watch for portions of the Lowcountry.

The watch affected Charleston, Coastal Colleton, Dorchester, Inland Berkeley, Inland Colleton and Tidal Berkeley.

Meteorologists say widespread showers and thunderstorms with torrential rainfall would impact much of the Charleston Tri-County area and Colleton County this evening.

“Rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches with localized amounts in excess of 5 inches could fall, possibly in less than 2 hours,” NWS officials said. “This combined with wet soils from recent heavy rains could result in areas of flash flooding.”
