Severe weather possible as thunderstorms move through area Thursday

Local News

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – A few thunderstorms are expected to move into the area on Thursday with a slight risk for severe thunderstorms.

The timing of the thunderstorm threat is what we are watching right now.

If storms come through early in the day, there is a lower threat for severe storms. But if storms arrive in the afternoon, there will be a greater risk for severe storms due to the warmer temperatures. 

The main threat will be damaging wind gusts, but isolated large hail and a few short-lived tornadoes will be possible as well, especially along the I-85 corridor and southeast.

Localized flooding will be possible in the southwest mountains, locations under the strongest storms, and in low-lying and poor drainage areas.
