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.

* 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.

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.

    - 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.

* 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.

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.

    - movement west-northwest or 300 degrees at 12 mph

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

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

Tropical depression 2 continues to move toward the southeast coast
this morning. At 2 am... the depression was located about 300 miles
southeast of Charleston... or 330 miles east-southeast of Savannah. The
depression is expected to move northwest through Saturday night while
slowing down... possibly brushing the Charleston area as a weak
tropical storm Sunday afternoon as it begins to move more northward.
The system is expected to begin to pull away from the area Sunday
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 locally
higher amounts are possible especially along the Charleston and
Colleton County coasts. Mainly less than half an inch is expected to
fall across southeast Georgia. 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 in rain bands
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 power lines 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.

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.

1130 PM EDT Fri may 27 2016

This product covers southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia

**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

          be brought to completion.
        - Hazardous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in serious injury. Move to safe shelter before
          the wind becomes hazardous.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - 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.

* Storm surge
    - latest local forecast: localized storm surge possible
        - peak storm surge inundation: the potential for up to 1 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - window of concern: early Saturday afternoon until early
          Sunday morning

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the storm surge threat has increased from the previous
          assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for peak
          storm surge flooding of greater than 1 foot above ground.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited storm
          surge flooding impacts. Efforts should now be brought to
          completion before conditions deteriorate.
        - Localized inundation is possible. Follow the instructions
          of local officials. Consider voluntary evacuation if
          recommended. Leave immediately if evacuation orders are
          issued.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized inundation of saltwater mainly along immediate
          shorelines and in low-lying spots farther inland near
          rivers and creeks.
        - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become
          overspread with surge water. Driving conditions hazardous
          in places where surge water covers the Road.
        - Minor to moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf possibly
          breaching dunes, mainly in normally vulnerable locations.
          Strong rip currents.
        - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks,
          boardwalks, and piers. A few small craft broken away from
          moorings.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast:
        - peak rainfall amounts: around 1 inch

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          minor flooding where peak rainfall totals are near amounts
          conducive for localized flash flooding and rapid inundation.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited flooding
          rain impacts.
        - Localized flooding is possible. If flood related watches
          and warnings are issued, heed recommended actions.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - 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.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is unfavorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: none
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans need not include a threat for tornadoes.
          Showers and thunderstorms with strong gusty winds may still
          occur.
        - Little to no preparations needed to guard against tropical
          tornadoes.
        - Ensure readiness for the next tropical tornado event.

    - Potential impacts: little to none
        - little to no potential impacts from tornadoes.
