  • Saturday evening Tropics check (8/26/2017)

The National Hurricane Center and the National Weather Service have issued tropical storm watches for Horry and Georgetown Counties through early Tuesday.

It is still too early to determine specific impacts, as the system may form and track far enough off the coast to not significantly impact the Outer Banks area. The next named storm in the Atlantic would be "Irma".

Periods of scattered rain and heavy downpours through this evening for our area.

The system is forecast to move near the northeastern coast of SC and along the North Carolina coast Monday night and Tuesday. By Monday afternoon and evening, most of the beaches will be dealing with rounds of these heavy showers. The low is expected to cause increasing winds and rough surf along the coasts of Georgia, the Carolinas, and Virginia through mid-week.

Some of the heaviest rains locally in recent days occurred in the Cooper City area, Baxter said, with radar indicating accumulations of up to 6 inches.

Low pressure over Florida will move up the coast of the Carolinas by the end of this weekend and into early next week. Everything will be back to normal by Wednesday. That would result in gusty northeast winds, high surf, rip currents and possible coastal flooding from Georgia to the mid-Atlantic.

Additionally, the low-pressure system in tandem with strong high pressure over the Northeast will create an onshore wind flow.

The latest forecast calls for northeast winds in the 25 miles per hour range Monday and Tuesday.
