First Alert Today for Possible Strong Storms

First Alert Today for a chance of some strong thunderstorms by late afternoon into the evening as a cold front makes its way to the state.  The front will bring a bit cooler temperatures and noticeable drop in humidity for the rest of work/school week.  The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has removed South Carolina from the "Marginal" risk category of severe weather today, however, I agree that much of the dynamics with the cold front will remain to our North, I believe we could see an isolated strong storm across the Midlands this evening.

High pressure will move in for a few days as the front moves off to the east…look for drop in temperatures and humidity Wednesday - Friday

August weather returns by the weekend…a bit more humidity and a return to daily chance of afternoon storms.
