The National Weather Service in Wilmington, N.C., has issued a flood advisory for Horry and Brunswick counties that is in effect until 12:30 p.m.
A north to south line of storms is moving to the north off the Atlantic, which may result in 2 to 2.5 inches of rain in a short period of time, said forecaster Michael Colby. Standing water on roadways, overflowing streams and minor flooding can be expected, which are nonlifethreatening, but they will be a nuisance, cause difficulties and make things slightly hazardous, he said.
“You’ll have a lull in the early afternoon, then more rain later this afternoon and tonight,” Colby said. “It’ll be a good soaker for you, but we don’t think the rain is going to be as heavy as what we’re seeing now. It will be spread out over a longer period of time.”
