Tropical Storm Watch issued for NC, SC coasts

Rough surf, rip currents and coastal flooding are anticipated Monday and Tuesday along the coast from Georgia to the mid-Atlantic.

Showers and thunderstorms associated with the system increased and became better organized, meaning the low will likely become a tropical depression or storm on Monday or Tuesday before it merges with a cold front.

A tropical storm watch was issued Sunday evening for the North Carolina as a storm is expected to move through the area over the coming days. All the while, heavy tropical rain will start to form and head onshore in the coastal Carolinas. Most of the weekend will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy with highs in the low to mid 80s and lows in the 60s to near 70.

Tropical storm-force winds are possible along the eastern shore of Virginia, Maryland and DE, along with minor to moderate coastal erosion on Tuesday and Wednesday morning.

The low pressure system located off the coast of Florida has strengthened and is now being referred to as Potential Tropical Cyclone Ten. A slow northward motion is expected tonight and Monday, followed by a faster northeastward motion Monday night and Tuesday.

Sunday: Heavy rain and gusty winds are possible from South Florida into coastal Georgia and the southern coast of SC.

The hurricane center said tropical storm watches could be needed for parts of the Carolinas later today.
