MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A severe thunderstorm warning is now in effect for the local area east of Interstate 95 through 7:45 p.m. Monday.

Some of the storms will likely be severe with winds over 55 mph, frequent lightning and very heavy rain.  There is also a small chance of an isolated tornado. This line of storms has a history of winds strong enough to blow down trees across the middle and western parts of South Carolina. 

The time frame of the potentially severe weather will run from 5 to 9 p.m. Monday across the inland areas, and 7 to 11 p.m. for areas near the beach.
