Potential Tropical Cyclone Ten: Tropical Storm Watches issued for ENC

28 August 2017

Regardless of how the system develops, the low was expected to cause increased winds and rough surf along the Georgia, North and SC coasts on Sunday and through mid-week.

Tropical storm wind conditions with wind speeds of 20-30 miles per hour and gusts up to 50 mph are possible along the Grand Strand through Tuesday, according to the watch advisory.

Even if the storm is not named, impacts will still be felt along our coast.

The National Weather Service has issued a tropical storm watch for a portion of the coast of North and SC.

This weather system, for now, has been dubbed Potential Tropical Cyclone Ten - a naming convention used to identify features that have a chance to develop into a tropical depression or storm, but could bring tropical storm-like impacts to the coast soon - by the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

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.

Low pressure over Florida will move up the coast of the Carolinas by the end of this weekend and into early next week.

A trough of low pressure extending from the eastern Gulf of Mexico continues to produce a large area of disorganized cloudiness and thunderstorms.

The forecast says that the system will move slowly toward the SC coast Sunday night and Monday.

RIP CURRENTS AND EROSION: Dangerous rip currents are likely Monday and Tuesday as gusty northeast winds create very rough surf.

CLOSER TO HOME, for the rest of the afternoon, expect a mix of sun and clouds with a breezy east to northeast wind at times.
