Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been canceled

UPDATE 11:13 PM: The National Weather Service has canceled the Severe Thunderstorm Watch for the Charleston area. The severe weather threat has diminished for our area.

Earlier this evening, severe thunderstorms hit Berkeley County, dropping half-dollar size hail on Bonneau Beach earlier and knocking down some trees in Cordesville and near Moncks Corner. An amateur radio operator reported power outages lasting over an hour in Cordesville along Highway 402.

If you have any additional reports of severe weather, please post them in the comments with a location and a description and I will forward to the National Weather Service.

Great weather for Saturday; showers and storms possible Sunday

Spring is back for a few more days — gorgeous on this Saturday with highs only to top out around 80 away from the coast. A few thunderstorms will be possible Sunday afternoon and evening as a disturbance aloft swings through, then back to dry weather for much of next week as ridging builds in. We’ll get gradually warmer; NWS has us approaching 90 again by the end of next week.
