COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The Tornado Watch for all counties in the Midlands has been canceled. A Flash Flood Watch that was in effect for Midlands counties has also been canceled. 

There is one last round of showers and a few thunderstorms that will move through the Midlands Wednesday night. A cold front will push through the state early Tuesday morning and the skies are expected to clear.

There is a low-pressure system on the back side of that front, however, that will bring a few showers to the area on Thursday. None of them are expected to be severe. 

A tornado was confirmed to have touched down Wednesday afternoon in Saluda County. Another tornado was confirmed in Newberry County shortly after 3 p.m. 

If you see any weather-related damage, email it to us at sendit@wistv.com.
