CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A stuck weather pattern will keep things unsettled and wet for the rest of this week. A stalled front nearby and an upper level low will be to blame keeping those rain chances high. As the upper level low approaches the stalled front near our area Tuesday into the upcoming weekend, activity will be more widespread. Scattered showers and storms are likely Tuesday into the upcoming weekend with more clouds. With the clouds and activity, highs will only be in the low 80s. Localized flooding will be possible, especially if your area sees several rounds of activity. By the end of the week, some spots may receive over 6″ of rainfall!

TROPICS: Tropical Storm Bret is moving west and forecast to become the first hurricane of the season by midweek. The storm may run into drier air and wind shear by the weekend which could weaken it then. No threat to our area at this time but we will continue to monitor. An area of showers off the coast of Africa and has a medium chance of development (60%) over the next week. A tropical depress could form within in the next few days. We’ll monitor this one as well.
