Be weather-aware today as a few thunderstorms could produce damaging winds and large hail this afternoon. A stacked low pressure system will continue its approach to the Charleston area this morning. As it gets closer, some drier air may filter in and break up the cloud cover we’re seeing, improving instability. The forcing from the low and some upper-level energy will allow for thunderstorms to develop this afternoon (think 1-2 PM). The strongest storms could bring some trees down and produce hail the size of quarters.
Thunderstorms will be possible well into the evening, but the window for severe weather appears to be 2PM to 8PM.
Be sure you can hear weather warnings this afternoon. NOAA Weather Radio and smartphone apps from local television stations are a great way to go about this.
