Weather News

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – A cold front will pass through the state on Sunday, bringing an increased chance of rain, isolated thunderstorms, and gusty winds.

Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Megan James says it will be a warm day with highs in the low to mid 80s. We’ll watch for the threat of showers and thunderstorms rolling towards the coast in the late afternoon and evening hours.

Many areas could see rain and thunderstorms around dinner time, with the sky clearing up before midnight.

The biggest threat will be gusty winds. “They’re going to be gusty even through midday, seeing winds at about 30 to 35 mph, so they will be strong,” said James. “Through the afternoon and evening, some of us could see wind gusts up to 40 mph as thunderstorms roll through.”

The National Weather Service has issued a small craft advisory from 9:00 a.m. Sunday through 11:00 a.m. Monday.
