The main body of rain that was supposed to unload on the Midlands on Wednesday skipped town sooner than forecasters expected.
Weather experts, though, are still calling for rainy skies today and Friday.
On Wednesday, Columbia and surrounding counties only saw intermittent wet spells. The heaviest parts of the storm were in Charleston.
The sporadic raininess followed Monday's record-breaking 2.58 inches of precipitation at the Columbia Metropolitan Airport. The rainfall broke the previous record for that day, set in 1990.
Never miss a local story.
Today, the forecast improves a little, with only a 30 percent chance of rain for people wanting to attend the South Carolina State Fair. There is a 20 percent chance of rain on Friday.
