Update, late Thursday: According to the National Weather Service, the rain is to continue through most of the night but stop by pre-dawn. Skies will clear during Friday, leaving us to get well into the 70s for Saturday's big run.

Also, The Post and Courier has a lengthy write-up about the day's rain -- in it you'll find out that it, well, rained.

Original post: 

Yes, it did in fact rain.

A weather station at The College of Charleston recorded 3.17 inches of rain today as roads all around the area flooded when the heaviest bit hit near 2:30, coinciding with high tide.

So, to that effect we've created a Google map of which roads flood. Anyone is free to edit it, and we hope it will serve as a handy reference the next time you plan your escape from a flooded downtown.

So, go take a look and improve it while you're there.

As for tonight you can expect a little more rain, but nothing too serious. Weather will clear tomorrow, and a sunny warm day is expected for Saturday's Cooper River Bridge Run.
