The National Weather Service in Columbia has issued severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings for Lancaster County until 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for all of Southeast Georgia.

The flood watch should expire late Wednesday night, but the threat of severe weather could linger through the Memorial Day weekend, forecasters said. Damaging winds will be the main concern, along with the potential for an isolated tornado and localized flooding. There is a potential for heavy downpours, damaging gusty winds, small hail and isolated tornadoes can not be ruled out.

Strong storms are also forecast for Richland and Lexington counties, and many other Midlands counties.

On Monday, Wilson was in the Supreme Court in Melbourne accompanied by her sister Anna, 25, for the start of the three-week trial. It was not a concern, he said, if they had previously seen one of Ms Wilson's films, Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids among them.

Waterspouts over the Intracoastal are also possible and boaters are urged to keep a close eye on approaching storm from the southwest which could produce offshore gusts up to 35 knots.

Meteorologist Joey Sovine says the highest chance of rain will be after lunchtime, in the afternoon and evening. "We're much more nervous where there's much greater risk of something really bad happening if a tornado occurs".

The heavier storms could trigger wind gusts of 30 to 50 miles per hour, with potentials for 2 to 4 inches of rain, possibly more in localized areas affected by more persistent activity.
