Warm weather Sunday, an isolated evening shower or storm possible

As a weak cold front moves through, areas south and east of Columbia could see a stray shower or storm.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — After showers and a few storms moved through Saturday evening, we have much nicer weather in place for our Sunday.

Low temperatures dropped down into the upper 50s to near 60 degrees across the Midlands. We're expecting another warm and muggy day with temperatures in the mid 70s around lunchtime and high temperatures near 80 degrees in the afternoon.

We do have the chance for an isolated shower or storm this evening as a weak cold front moves through. Areas south and east of Columbia have the greatest chance of seeing one of these stray showers generally between 4 pm and 8 pm. We are not under any severe risks from the Storm Prediction Center and do not anticipate any bad weather.
