Damaging Wind, Hail Possible with Storms Wednesday in South Carolina

Jun 5, 2019

Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms are possible across South Carolina today as plenty of moisture and energy flows in from the west.

Isolated thunderstorms are beginning to pop up over the western Blue Ridge and far southern coast. These storms will become more scattered toward the end of the workday and could dot the state by the evening commute.

These thunderstorms could be strong and produce small hail, gusty winds, heavy downpours, and flash flooding. The risk of isolated tornadoes is low.  

Conditions are most favorable for severe thunderstorms in the northern half of the state, from Florence west to the Blue Ridge and the border with North Carolina.

Scattered storms will persist through midnight, then dwindle before sunrise Thursday. Another round of storms is likely tomorrow, but the threat of hail and damaging winds should be lower.
