CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A storm system moving toward the Lowcountry will bring more than an inch of rain to the area Sunday and some areas could see up to three inches.

Live 5 Meteorologist Joey Sovine said Sunday is likely to feature rain all day with periods of heavy rain. The rainfall is expected to beginning late Saturday night and continue through most of Sunday.

“Several inches of rain is going to be a possibility, but we’re not expecting any flooding,” Sovine said.

Live 5 Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh said most of the area will see rainfall totals of between one and two inches by Sunday night, but isolated portions of the area, including northern Colleton and Dorchester Counties could record up to three inches.

The amount of rain will depend on the speed of the system moving through the area, he said.

The Storm Prediction Center is not forecasting a severe weather threat associated with the rain.

“It will be a wet day. It’ll be a good day to sit home, watch TV, hang out,” Walsh said.

The Live 5 Weather team declared Sunday a First Alert Weather Day because of the amount of rainfall expected.
