First Alert Forecast: Summer time pattern returns with a chance of downpours and storms each afternoon

A wetter and more seasonable pattern moves into the Midlands for the rest of the week

- Pattern change for the Midlands! Less heat and more rain as we move into the workweek

- Highs will be around 90. Lows will be around 70

- Each afternoon features a chance for downpours and storms 40%-60%

- Best chance for rain will be for the weekend

High pressure starts to move away and off our coast. This will start to send tropical moisture into the state this afternoon and it will last for several days. In return, we’ll see a good chance of late afternoon showers and thunderstorms each afternoon into early next week.

Some days will have a better chance for rain than others as small disturbances will enhance the afternoon storm potential. There is a Severe Thunderstorm watch until 8 PM Tuesday evening, but the risk for severe weather is on the lower side. The Thunderstorm Watch is for just Orangeburg County.

Daily high temperatures will be around 90 over the next several days. You can forget that dry feeling as you’ll feel the humidity big time as we move through the week.

Forecast:

Tonight: Showers ending by late evening. Otherwise, quiet. Lows around 70.

Wednesday: A mix of sun and clouds with highs around 90. 40% chance for downpours and storms for the afternoon/evening

Thursday: A mix of sun and clouds with highs around 90. 40% chance for downpours and storms for the afternoon/evening

Friday: A mix of sun and clouds with highs around 90. 40% chance for downpours and storms for the afternoon/evening
