Tropical Storm Watch issued for coastal SC, NC counties


The heaviest rain and strongest winds will occur starting late Monday night and through Tuesday. A beach hazards statement issued over the weekend was replaced with a tropical storm watch Sunday night.

A developing area of low pressure off the Coast of the Carolinas will likely become a tropical depression late tonight and then a tropical storm on Monday.

The Hurricane Center may initiate advisories for the potential development of a tropical cyclone off the Southeast coast as early as this afternoon, DiGiorgi said in a release.

IN THE TROPICS, Tropical Storm Harvey continues to meander over southeastern Texas with little movement expected over the next several days.


If the system develops into a tropical storm, it will be given the name Irma. Overnight, expect plenty of clouds and rain chances to increase into Tuesday.

Note that north of Duck, North Carolina, hazards from this system will be handled with non-tropical products issued by local National Weather Service offices. That would result in gusty northeast winds, high surf, rip currents and possible coastal flooding from Georgia to the mid-Atlantic.

A trough of low pressure extending from the eastern Gulf of Mexico continues to produce a large area of disorganized cloudiness and thunderstorms. On the forecast track, the system will move slowly toward the SC coast tonight and Monday. Rough surf will bring a greater danger to swimmers and surfers with rip currents as well.
