Tropical storm watch for parts of SC coast

Tropical storm watch for parts of SC coast

Shower and thunderstorm activity has increased in coverage and gradually become better organized, and the low is likely to become a tropical depression or tropical storm in the next day or so.

The center expects the system to bring up to 6 inches of rain along the coasts of North and SC and southeast Virginia.

Late Sunday afternoon, the National Hurricane Center issued a tropical storm watch for Georgetown and Horry counties in SC.

The cyclone has 35 miles per hour winds and now stationary. Although strong upper-level winds could limit tropical storm formation, some subtropical development as the system moves northeast across the state of Florida, and into the Atlantic Ocean, could occur.

By Tuesday afternoon the tropical cyclone will begin to weaken as it moves away from the North Carolina coast.

This is also the time when heavy rain and wind could impact Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington. It could become a tropical system at any time. The coast will see the rain start as early as Monday morning while inland areas won't see the heavy rain until late Monday into Tuesday.

Here in the Piedmont, we're only expecting a few scattered showers from this system, mainly Monday night and Tuesday.

Regardless of whether the system is tropical or non tropical, gusty winds and rough seas are expected along the coast with enhanced chances of rip currents.

Rainfall totals of 2 to 4 inches are expected along the Southeast coast, with locally higher amounts, especially at the coast.
