Next Front Arrives Overnight, Marginal Risk of Severe Weather

  • Next Front Arrives Overnight, Marginal Risk of Severe Weather

The watch covers Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester, Beaufort, Orangeburg, and Colleton Counties.

More clouds but quiet conditions are possible later next week.

Conditions range from severe weather in the lower Mississippi River Valley and southeast to blizzard conditions in the Northern Plains and upper Midwest.

While the chance of hail, lightning and tornado's are slight, the chance for damaging winds are elevated.

The NWS Storm Prediction Center defines a "moderate risk" this way: Severe thunderstorms are expected to affect between 5 and 10 percent of the area. "Pick up any lightweight objects around the yard and use caution on the roads".

Winds could bring downed trees and power lines, the release states. Edisto Electric Coop reported no outages. In this case, that begins with just being aware that severe storms are possible in our region roughly in the 3 p.m.to midnight time period, though not everywhere constantly.




YOUR FREE WECT MOBILE WEATHER APP: During an overnight storm risk, your First Alert weather app can keep you one step ahead of the storm, and alert you to severe weather watches and warnings. A warning means that action is required because of immediate threats. For that reason, please heed all severe thunderstorm warnings with the same urgency as tornado warnings, since 60-70+ miles per hour wind gusts have the potential to cause as much tree and powerline damage as a EF0 to EF1 tornado.

The National Weather Service in Saint Louis has issued a Freeze Warning for South Central Illinois. Strong winds aloft translating to the surface in downdrafts will bring the potential of damaging winds - hard to say if this will be sporadic or fairly widespread. Flooding is listed as a lesser threat, with the exception of localized flooding from periods of heavy rain.

Can't rule out an isolated tornado. There will be some sun in at least the first half of the day.

If you have plans tonight, you won't have to worry about much rain until we get into the overnight hours.
