CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - High pressure in control as we move into Wednesday with a little more sunshine, but still pop-up showers or thunderstorms are possible each day thanks to enough moisture and our typical sea breeze and afternoon heating. A cold front is headed south and will push through on Wednesday becoming stationary. The chance of rain will increase though on Thursday, Friday and Saturday as an upper low spins across the Gulf Coast and pumps up moisture and energy making for wet weather. Tides also stay elevated into the upcoming weekend and some flooding issues may come up because of that and the rainfall. Highs will stay hot near 92 Wednesday, but cool into the 80′s for the rest of the week thanks to the increased cloud cover and shower activity.

TROPICS: Hurricane Danielle is not a threat to any land areas now, or in the future as it drifts into the Atlantic Ocean. Tropical Storm Earl will pass just north of the Leeward Islands. Earl should curve back to the north/northeast through the week, which will keep the storm away from the east coast. We’ll keep a close eye on things and let you know of any changes!

TONIGHT: Mainly Clear & Muggy Low 74.

WEDNESDAY: Partly Sunny, Scattered Showers Possible, High 92.

THURSDAY: Mostly Cloudy with showers, High 86.

FRIDAY: Mostly Cloudy with showers, High 82.

SATURDAY: Mostly Cloudy with showers, High 83.

SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy with showers, High 85.
