Wind Damage Possible with Storms in Upstate Tuesday

Thunderstorms capable of producing wind damage are possible Tuesday afternoon in the South Carolina Upstate, including areas near Greenville, Spartanburg, and Clemson.

The storms are expected to develop mid-afternoon and become widely scattered by early evening. The strongest cells could produce wind gusts up to 60 mph, sudden downpours, frequent lightning, and small hail. Flash flooding could also occur in low lying areas with poor drainage, especially from cells producing high rainfall rates.

Thunderstorm activity is also expected in the Lowcountry Wednesday afternoon and evening, although it will likely not be as strong as in the Upstate. However, the strongest cells could still produce heavy rain, gusty winds, and lightning.

A few showers and thunderstorms across the Palmetto State may continue after midnight, but the severe weather risk is expected to diminish by late evening.
