**td 2 likely to become a tropical storm later today**


New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for inland
      Berkeley... inland Jasper... Beaufort... coastal
      Colleton... Charleston... coastal Jasper and tidal Berkeley

* storm information:
    - about 220 miles south-southeast of Charleston SC or about 230
      miles southeast of Savannah GA
    - 30.0n 78.0w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement northwest or 305 degrees at 14 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical depression 2 is expected to strengthen to a weak tropical
storm later today as it approaches the South Carolina coast. The
storm is still expected to move ashore late tonight and early
Sunday... then move very slowly north and east
away from the area later Sunday through Monday.

The main impacts from this system are expected to be mainly over
the coastal regions within the Tropical Storm Warning area. Tropical
storm force wind gusts up to 45 mph... especially within rainbands...
will be possible by later this afternoon and through tonight. These
winds may down some tree branches or small limbs... produce hazardous
driving conditions over bridges... and cause some scattered power
outages.

Rain could become locally heavy at times by later this afternoon
through at least Sunday. 2 to 4 inches of total rainfall is expected
across southeast South Carolina with locally higher amounts possible...
especially along the coast. There will be a risk for minor flooding...
mainly in low lying and poorly drained areas near the South Carolina
coast close to the times of high tide. However... significant flash
flooding is not expected at this time. The amount of rain the area
receives will be highly dependent on the exact track and speed of the
storm.

At the coast and beaches... there will be increased risk for stronger
and more frequent rip currents as well as some beach erosion along the
southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia coasts through the
Holiday weekend.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across southeast South Carolina and southeast
Georgia. Potential impacts include:
    - rivers and tributaries could quickly rise with swifter
      currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches could
      become swollen and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in normally
      vulnerable spots. Rapid ponding of water could occur at
      underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage areas. Several
      storm drains and retention ponds become near-full and begin to
      overflow. Some brief Road and bridge closures.

* Wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
southeast South Carolina. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Hazardous driving conditions on bridges and other elevated
      roadways, especially for high profile vehicles.
    - Isolated to scattered power and communications outages.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

* Other coastal hazards:
there will be increased risk for stronger and more frequent rip
currents as well as beach erosion along the beaches of both southeast
South Carolina and southeast Georgia through the Holiday weekend.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* other preparedness information:
now is the time to bring to completion all preparations to protect
life and property in accordance with your emergency plan.

Keep cell phones well charged and handy. Also, cell phone chargers
for automobiles can be helpful after the storm. Locate your chargers
and keep them with your cell phone.

In emergencies it is best to remain calm. Stay informed and focused
on the situation at hand. Exercise patience with those you encounter.
Be a good samaritan and helpful to others.

If you are a visitor and still in the area, listen for the name of
the city or town in which you are staying within local news updates.
Be sure you know the name of the County or Parish in which it
resides. Pay attention for instructions from local authorities.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to
the forecast.

      currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches could
      become swollen and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in normally
      vulnerable spots. Rapid ponding of water could occur at
      underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage areas. Several
      storm drains and retention ponds become near-full and begin to
      overflow. Some brief Road and bridge closures.

* Wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
southeast South Carolina. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Hazardous driving conditions on bridges and other elevated
      roadways, especially for high profile vehicles.
    - Isolated to scattered power and communications outages.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

* Other coastal hazards:
there will be increased risk for stronger and more frequent rip
currents as well as beach erosion along the beaches of both southeast
South Carolina and southeast Georgia through the Holiday weekend.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical depression 2 is expected to strengthen to a weak tropical
storm later today as it approaches the South Carolina coast. The
storm is still expected to move ashore late tonight and early
Sunday... then move very slowly north and east
away from the area later Sunday through Monday.

The main impacts from this system are expected to be mainly over
the coastal regions within the Tropical Storm Warning area. Tropical
storm force wind gusts up to 45 mph... especially within rainbands...
will be possible by later this afternoon and through tonight. These
winds may down some tree branches or small limbs... produce hazardous
driving conditions over bridges... and cause some scattered power
outages.

Rain could become locally heavy at times by later this afternoon
through at least Sunday. 2 to 4 inches of total rainfall is expected
across southeast South Carolina with locally higher amounts possible...
especially along the coast. There will be a risk for minor flooding...
mainly in low lying and poorly drained areas near the South Carolina
coast close to the times of high tide. However... significant flash
flooding is not expected at this time. The amount of rain the area
receives will be highly dependent on the exact track and speed of the
storm.

At the coast and beaches... there will be increased risk for stronger
and more frequent rip currents as well as some beach erosion along the
southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia coasts through the
Holiday weekend.

    - movement northwest or 315 degrees at 14 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical depression 2 continues to move toward the southeast coast
this morning. At 5 am... the depression was located about 265 miles
southeast of Charleston... or 280 miles east-southeast of Savannah. The
depression is expected to move northwest through tonight while slowing
down... possibly making landfall in or near Charleston County Sunday
afternoon as a very weak tropical storm. The system is then expected
to begin to pull away from the area Sunday night.

Weather conditions will steadily deteriorate this afternoon and
tonight as the depression begins to approaches the coast. Rain could
become locally heavy at times this afternoon through at least Sunday...
with 1 to 3 inches expected across southeast South Carolina. Locally
higher amounts will be possible... especially along the coast. There
will be a risk for minor flooding... mainly in low lying and poor
drainage areas near the South Carolina coast near the times of high
tide... but significant flash flooding is not expected at this time.
The amount of rain the area receives will be highly dependent on the
exact track and speed of the tropical depression.

The risk for tropical storm force wind gusts will be highest in rain
bands tonight through Sunday morning as the depression approaches and
then possibly moves over or near the lower South Carolina coast. The
area that is most likely to see tropical storm force winds gusts ...
potentially as high as 25 to 35 mph with higher gusts... will be along
the coastal areas of southeast South Carolina... including the
Charleston Metro area. Winds of this magnitude are capable of breaking
weak limbs... damaging weak structures... porches... shingles or siding
and blowing around light weight objects. Isolated power outages are
possible. Dangerous driving conditions could develop on elevated and
exposed bridges such as the Ravenel bridge... the Don Holt bridge... the
James Island connector and the Isle of Palms connector.

There will be increased risk for stronger and more frequent rip
currents as well as beach erosion along the beaches of both southeast
South Carolina and southeast Georgia through the Holiday weekend.

Potential impacts

* Wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
southeast South Carolina. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable due to debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded locations. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways, especially for high
      profile vehicles.
    - Isolated to scattered power and communications outages.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

* Other coastal hazards:
there will be increased risk for stronger and more frequent rip
currents as well as beach erosion along the beaches of both southeast
South Carolina and southeast Georgia through the Holiday weekend.

**depression has not strengthened yet**

New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for inland
      Berkeley... inland Jasper... Beaufort... coastal
      Colleton... Charleston... coastal Jasper and tidal Berkeley

* storm information:
    - about 265 miles southeast of Charleston SC or about 280 miles
      east-southeast of Savannah GA
    - 29.9n 77.0w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement northwest or 315 degrees at 14 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical depression 2 continues to move toward the southeast coast
this morning. At 5 am... the depression was located about 265 miles
southeast of Charleston... or 280 miles east-southeast of Savannah. The
depression is expected to move northwest through tonight while slowing
down... possibly making landfall in or near Charleston County Sunday
afternoon as a very weak tropical storm. The system is then expected
to begin to pull away from the area Sunday night.

Weather conditions will steadily deteriorate this afternoon and
tonight as the depression begins to approaches the coast. Rain could
become locally heavy at times this afternoon through at least Sunday...
with 1 to 3 inches expected across southeast South Carolina. Locally
higher amounts will be possible... especially along the coast. There
will be a risk for minor flooding... mainly in low lying and poor
drainage areas near the South Carolina coast near the times of high
tide... but significant flash flooding is not expected at this time.
The amount of rain the area receives will be highly dependent on the
exact track and speed of the tropical depression.

The risk for tropical storm force wind gusts will be highest in rain
bands tonight through Sunday morning as the depression approaches and
then possibly moves over or near the lower South Carolina coast. The
area that is most likely to see tropical storm force winds gusts ...
potentially as high as 25 to 35 mph with higher gusts... will be along
the coastal areas of southeast South Carolina... including the
Charleston Metro area. Winds of this magnitude are capable of breaking
weak limbs... damaging weak structures... porches... shingles or siding
and blowing around light weight objects. Isolated power outages are
possible. Dangerous driving conditions could develop on elevated and
exposed bridges such as the Ravenel bridge... the Don Holt bridge... the
James Island connector and the Isle of Palms connector.

There will be increased risk for stronger and more frequent rip
currents as well as beach erosion along the beaches of both southeast
South Carolina and southeast Georgia through the Holiday weekend.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across southeast South Carolina and southeast
Georgia. Potential impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding could prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries could quickly rise with swifter
      currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches could
      become swollen and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in normally
      vulnerable spots. Rapid ponding of water could occur at
      underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage areas. Several
      storm drains and retention ponds become near-full and begin to
      overflow. Some brief Road and bridge closures.

... High rip current risk in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect through this evening.

* Rip currents... wind and wave conditions support the
development of very strong rip currents. These rip currents
will be life threatening to anyone who enters the surf.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

No one should enter the surf due to life threatening rip
currents.






... Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect...

* locations affected
    - Charleston
    - McClellanville
    - Edisto Island

* wind
    - latest local forecast: equivalent tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 30-40 mph with gusts to 50 mph

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Remain braced against the reasonable threat for tropical
