Live 5 Meteorologist Joey Sovine said the weather will be quiet Monday with sunshine and highs in the mid-70s. 

But on Tuesday, a few spotty showers late in the morning or early in the afternoon will give way to a line of strong to severe storms that will develop to the west of the Lowcountry. 

Those storms are expected to move into the Lowcountry between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m., Sovine said. 

“Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible with damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes,” he said.
