Rain associated with what was Tropical Storm Ida (now a tropical depression) started a little slower in South Carolina than expected and will stick around longer than originally forecast.
Between half an inch and an inch of rain fell during daylight hours over most of the Midlands and Upstate on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. The forecast calls for rain to continue through most of today, with up to 2 additional inches in some areas.
The weather service issued a flood watch for the Midlands, indicating some creeks and streams could rise slowly and overflow their banks. River flooding along the Congaree is possible after the rains pass.
