Wettest day in over a month!

Updated: 3 hours ago

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - An area of low pressure will slide along a stalled front near our coast creating a favorable set up for the wettest day we’ve had since early November. Early morning downpours will give way to a break in the activity before a larger shield of rain(including downpours and a few rumbles of thunder) push toward the coast. A round of heavier rainfall is expected from late morning into the early afternoon hours. There is a very low risk of a strong to severe thunderstorm. This is very beneficial rainfall with many spots, especially north of I-26, having slipped into a moderate to severe drought over the past month. The rain should begin to taper off by mid afternoon with dry weather expected for the evening commute. Temperatures will cool as the sky begins to clear tonight with lows in the low 40s. We’ll see a return to sunshine tomorrow but temperatures will stay cool with highs in the low 60s. Warmer weather is expected Friday and Saturday with temperatures warming into the 70s. One or two showers are possible Friday but most folks will stay dry. Another cold front heads our way late Saturday bringing the chance of a few showers Saturday evening or Saturday night. Dry, sunny and cooler weather is expected Sunday with highs back in the low 60s.
