CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - There is a slight risk of severe weather through this evening. Widespread severe weather is not anticipated at this time. Gusty winds and heavy rains are the biggest concerns. We’ll likely get a break from the rain overnight but we do expect rain, and even a few thunderstorms, to return by tomorrow morning. Expect a wet Thursday with cloudy and cool conditions. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 60s. The best rain chance of rain will fall Thursday morning but a few showers may linger into the afternoon.

Another disturbance will head our way Friday and Friday night bringing another round of showers and thunderstorms. A lot of Friday will be dry but moisture will start to increase late in the day with a cold front advancing through the Southeast Friday night. A round of strong to severe storms are possible early Saturday morning as the front moves through the area. The severe threat may be limited due to the arrival of the storms during the coolest part of the day. We’ll keep you updated!

Rain will likely end by mid morning on Saturday and clouds will quickly clear out by lunchtime. Saturday will wind up being a windy day with temperatures falling in the afternoon behind the cold front. Temperatures should be near 70° in the morning but fall into the 50s by late in the afternoon. Get ready for a cold night Saturday with lows falling into the upper 20s and low 30s inland, mid to upper 30s along the coast. Be prepared to cover up your plants Saturday night to prevent damage from this brief shot of cold air. Sunday will be a beautiful day with light winds but temperatures will only reach the mid 50s, about 15° below average for this time of the year. Warmer weather will return early next week with highs near 70° by Tuesday.

TONIGHT: Scattered Rain/Storms. Low 58.

THURSDAY: Cloudy with Rain Likely. High 64, Low 52.

FRIDAY: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Rain. High 70, Low 67.
