More showers and thunderstorms are expected Wednesday after severe weather passed through the Lowcountry Tuesday.

Meteorologist Joey Sovine says the highest chance of rain will be after lunchtime, in the afternoon and evening.

More flooding, damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

A tornado watch and flash flood warning for the Lowcountry ended late Tuesday night.

Shortly after 5:30 a.m. Wednesday, the city of Charleston said the following roads were still impassable due to flooding.

  • Ashley Ave. – From Bennett St. to Calhoun St.
  • Ashley Ave. – From Tradd St. to Broad St.
  • Gadsden St. at Bennett St.
  • Wentworth St. at Barre St.

Gadsden at Bennett impassible. All lanes are open in both directions of the Crosstown + Calhoun.
