MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) -Steady, heavy rain is beginning to taper off to scattered downpours and that trend will continue through daybreak Tuesday.

The flood threat will be highest tonight across Robeson, Scotland, Marlboro and Dillon Counties. 

Lingering showers will be possible early Tuesday but will gradually taper off and end by the early afternoon.
