A cold front approaching from the west will trigger strong to severe thunderstorms tonight. Thunderstorm activity will be active after 8 PM until 4 AM Tuesday. Coverage is a tad squirrely with the strongest storms over the Upstate and northern Midland (Abbeville to Marlboro), and a separate glob of storm over the southern counties of the State, south of a line from Allendale to southern Georgetown County. Primary threat will be lightning, heavy rain, 50-60 mph wind gusts, and with abundant low-level shear, short-lived, isolated tornadoes are possible. The Storm Prediction Center, in sunny Norman Oklahoma, has placed the eastern half of the State at slight risk for severe storms and an enhanced risk for severe storms over the Low Country. Suspect these risk areas may be expanded later today. At least it ain't snow.
