Storms roll into Lowcountry this afternoon; Beware severe weather

Image by NOAA The weather as of 9:45 a.m. Sunday.

Watch the skies this afternoon as the storm that were battering the Mississippi region move through the Lowcountry today bringing the potential for strong winds, hail, lighting, and even tornados.  

The heaviest rain and potential for lighting is expected to come between 2 and 8 this afternoon, tapering out through the early a.m. of Monday.

Normally I would interpret today's National Weather Service forecast discussion, but Jared Smith has already done a nice job at Charleston Weather; read his analysis here.

As for Monday, expect a breezy 81 degrees, and then a slight chance of rain on Tuesday as we settle into a cooler week with highs in the mid 70s.
