A squall line will move across much of Southeast South Carolina
and Southeast Georgia this afternoon as a strong cold front
approaches from the west. The line of thunderstorms will reach
interior Southeast Georgia by early afternoon and progress across
the region before exiting off the middle South Carolina coast by
early evening. These thunderstorms will be capable of producing
damaging winds in excess of 60 mph, marginally large hail,
frequent cloud to ground lightning and tornadoes. Locally heavy
rainfall that could produce minor flooding of low lying and poor
drainage areas is also possible.

Tornado Watches are likely. This is developing situation. Stay
tuned to NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards, TV or your local news
source for later statements and possible warnings from the
National Weather Service.
