Warm weather persists in Charleston, high risk of rip currents today

You might keep the umbrella handy on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning and take cover, with a line of storms expected to descend upon Central Texas that could be accompanied by large hail and heavy rain, according to the National Weather Service.

A 30 percent chance of snow showers, mainly before noon.

"Once we get into Tuesday night, that's when we've got about a 70-percent chance of rain moving in with a low of 57", O'Quinn added.

Sunny, with a high near 59. That front will bring back another round of snow to the mountains with a good chance of rain in the valley...and some snow could come down to near the valley floors because of the convective nature of that pattern. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 77.

Tonight: Partly cloudy, with a low around 63. Southwest wind 16 to 21 miles per hour decreasing to 8 to 13 miles per hour after midnight. I have read that a sustained wind of about 20 miles per hour is required to produce electricity from a windmill. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible. East southeast wind around 9 miles per hour. Southwest wind around 5 miles per hour.

Thursday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 74. Thursday's high should be in the mid 50s, and look for a high in the low 50s Friday. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 28. Partly cloudy, with a low around 29.
