Slight severe weather risk tomorrow

Rain chances will be with us overnight tonight into tomorrow morning; lows will only fall to the mid-60s.

Tricky forecast for tomorrow — best rain chance is going to be in the afternoon. What we’ll need to watch is whether clouds break and let the sun peek through for any extended period of time ahead of the front — if this happens, we may be dealing with a few severe thunderstorms (with damaging winds the main concern) during the afternoon hours. Make sure you have reliable ways to receive National Weather Service watches and warnings. Facebook is not that venue — start with a NOAA Weather Radio or an alerting smartphone app such as iMap Weather Radio or even any of the local television station apps. (The Weather Channel’s app will push alerts, too.) With any luck, cloud cover will stick around and we won’t have to worry about the severe threat so much, but it’s better to be prepared!

Sunday looks much better — highs around 70 with a drier airmass in place will make for a really beautiful day in the Lowcountry.
