TORNADO WATCH: A Tornado Watch has been issued for Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester and Colleton Counties until 9:00 p.m.
CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) – A line of showers and thunderstorms will approach the Lowcountry this afternoon and move offshore by mid-evening. Some thunderstorms in this line could become severe with a threat of wind damage, large hail, and isolated tornadoes.
“The greatest threat for severe thunderstorms will arrive after 4 PM and end by 9 PM,” said Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Josh Marthers. “Although a widespread outbreak of severe thunderstorms isn’t expected, some of us could see our weather turn quite nasty later today with a threat of straight-line wind damage and isolated tornadoes.”
Storm Team 2 suggests having multiple ways to receive warnings including a NOAA Weather Radio, the Storm Team 2 Weather App, and EAS alerts activated on your mobile device.
