**depression forecast to become a tropical storm overnight or
saturday**

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 350 miles southeast of Charleston SC or about 370 miles
      east-southeast of Savannah GA
    - 29.0n 75.9w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement west-northwest or 300 degrees at 12 mph

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

Tropical depression 2 continues to slowly organize over the
southwestern Atlantic this evening. At 11 PM... the depression was
located about 350 miles southeast of Charleston... or 370 miles east-
southeast of Savannah. The depression is expected to gradually move
northwest overnight into Saturday night... possibly brushing the
Charleston area as a weak tropical storm Sunday afternoon... before
exiting the area Sunday afternoon and evening.

Weather conditions will steadily deteriorate Saturday night into
Sunday morning as the depression approaches the coast. Rain could
become locally heavy at times with as much as 1 to 2 inches
potentially falling across southeast South Carolina with an inch or
less falling across southeast Georgia. Locally higher amounts are
possible... especially along the Charleston and Colleton County coasts.
There will be a risk for minor flooding... mainly in low lying and poor
drainage areas... but significant flash flooding is not expected at
this time. The risk for flooding will be highest in urban areas as
well as coastal areas during times of high tide. However... the amount
of rain the area receives will be highly dependent on the exact track
the tropical depression takes.

The risk for tropical storm force winds will be highest Saturday night
through the day Sunday as the depression approaches the lower South
Carolina coast. The area that is most likely to see tropical storm
force winds... potentially as high as 30 to 40 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 Downing weak trees and powerlines and could damage siding
on some homes. 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. No significant wind impacts are expected
across the remainder of southeast South Carolina and southeast
Georgia.

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.

* 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:
rip currents... there will be an increased for stronger and more frequent
rip currents at area beaches through the Holiday weekend. Some beach
erosion is likely.

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.

Outside preparations should be wrapped up as soon as possible before
weather conditions completely deteriorate. Any remaining evacuations
and relocations should be expedited before the onset of tropical
storm force wind.

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.

      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.
    - 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:
rip currents... there will be an increased for stronger and more frequent
rip currents at area beaches through the Holiday weekend. Some beach
erosion is likely.

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.

Outside preparations should be wrapped up as soon as possible before
weather conditions completely deteriorate. Any remaining evacuations
and relocations should be expedited before the onset of tropical
storm force wind.

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.

**tropical Storm Warning continues for the South Carolina coast**

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

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

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

* storm information:
    - about 390 miles southeast of Charleston SC or about 420 miles
      east-southeast of Savannah GA
    - 28.8n 75.1w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement west-northwest or 300 degrees at 13 mph

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

Tropical depression 2 continues to slowly organize over the southwestern
Atlantic this evening. At 8 PM... the depression was located about
390 miles southeast of Charleston... or 420 miles east-southeast of
Savannah. The depression is expected to gradually move northwest
tonight and Saturday... making landfall along the lower South
Carolina coast Sunday morning as a tropical storm.

Weather conditions will steadily deteriorate Saturday afternoon and
especially Saturday night as the depression approaches the coast. Rain
could become locally heavy at times with as much as 1 to 2 inches
potentially falling across southeast South Carolina with an inch or
less falling across southeast Georgia. Locally higher amounts are
possible. There will be a risk for minor flooding... especially in low
lying and poor drainage areas... but significant flash flooding is not
expected at this time. The risk for flooding will be highest in urban
areas as well as coastal areas during times of high tide. However...
the amount of rain the area receives will be dependent on the exact
track the tropical depression takes.

The risk for tropical storm force winds will be highest Saturday night
into Sunday as the depression approaches the lower South Carolina
coast. The area that is most likely to see tropical storm force
winds... potentially as high as 30 to 40 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 Downing
a few trees and powerlines. Some power outages are possible.

There will be increased risk for stronger and more frequent rip
currents as well as beach erosion along the beaches through the
Holiday weekend.

Potential impacts

      profile vehicles.
    - Isolated to scattered power and communications outages.

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

* 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.

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.

* 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.

* Other coastal hazards:
rip currents... there will be an increased for stronger and more frequent
rip currents at area beaches through the Holiday weekend. Some beach
erosion is likely.

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

* evacuations:
if you are exceptionally vulnerable to wind or water hazards from
tropical systems, consider voluntary evacuation, especially if being
officially recommended. Relocate to a predetermined shelter or safe
destination.

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

Outside preparations should be wrapped up as soon as possible before
weather conditions completely deteriorate. Any remaining evacuations
and relocations should be expedited before the onset of tropical
storm force wind.

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.

**tropical Storm Warning issued for the South Carolina coast**

New information

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

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

* storm information:
    - about 390 miles southeast of Charleston SC or about 420 miles
      east-southeast of Savannah GA
    - 28.8n 75.1w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement west-northwest or 300 degrees at 13 mph

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

Tropical depression 2 continues to slowly organize over the southwestern
Atlantic this evening. At 8 PM... the depression was located about
390 miles southeast of Charleston... or 420 miles east-southeast of
Savannah. The depression is expected to gradually move northwest
tonight and Saturday... making landfall along the lower South
Carolina coast Sunday morning as a tropical storm.

Weather conditions will steadily deteriorate Saturday afternoon and
especially Saturday night as the depression approaches the coast. Rain
could become locally heavy at times with as much as 1 to 2 inches
potentially falling across southeast South Carolina with an inch or
less falling across southeast Georgia. Locally higher amounts are
possible. There will be a risk for minor flooding... especially in low
lying and poor drainage areas... but significant flash flooding is not
expected at this time. The risk for flooding will be highest in urban
areas as well as coastal areas during times of high tide. However...
the amount of rain the area receives will be dependent on the exact
track the tropical depression takes.

The risk for tropical storm force winds will be highest Saturday night
into Sunday as the depression approaches the lower South Carolina
coast. The area that is most likely to see tropical storm force
winds... potentially as high as 30 to 40 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 Downing
a few trees and powerlines. Some power outages are possible.

There will be increased risk for stronger and more frequent rip
currents as well as beach erosion along the beaches through the
Holiday weekend.

    - movement west-northwest or 300 degrees at 13 mph

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

Tropical depression 2 has developed in the southwestern Atlantic...
about 420 miles southeast of Charleston... or 450 miles east-southeast
of Savannah. The depression is expected to gradually move northwest
tonight and Saturday... making landfall along the lower South Carolina
coast Sunday morning as a tropical storm.

Weather conditions will steadily deteriorate Saturday afternoon and
especially Saturday night as the depression approaches the coast. Rain
could become locally heavy at times with as much as 1 to 2 inches
potentially falling across southeast South Carolina with an inch
or less falling across southeast Georgia. Locally higher amounts are
possible. There will be a risk for minor flooding... especially in low
lying and poor drainage areas... but significant flash flooding is not
expected at this time. The risk for flooding will be highest in
urban areas as well as coastal areas during times of high tide.
However... the amount of rain the area receives will be dependent on
the exact track the tropical depression takes.

The risk for tropical storm force winds will be highest Saturday night
into Sunday as the depression approaches the lower South Carolina
coast. The area that is most likely to see tropical storm force winds...
potentially as high as 30 to 40 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 Downing
a few trees and powerlines. Some power outages are possible.

There will be increased risk for stronger and more frequent rip currents
as well as beach erosion along the beaches through the Holiday weekend.

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

* wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia. Potential impacts
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.

* 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.

* Other coastal hazards:
rip currents... there will be an increased for stronger and more frequent
rip currents at area beaches through the Holiday weekend. Some beach
erosion is likely.

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

* evacuations:
if you are exceptionally vulnerable to wind or water hazards from
tropical systems, consider voluntary evacuation, especially if being
officially recommended. Relocate to a predetermined shelter or safe
destination.

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

Outside preparations should be wrapped up as soon as possible before
weather conditions completely deteriorate. Any remaining evacuations
and relocations should be expedited before the onset of tropical
storm force wind.

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.
