Tracking Heavy Showers, Tropical Disturbance Off Coast

Tracking Heavy Showers, Tropical Disturbance Off Coast

As of 2 p.m., the system was once again out to sea, moving northward parallel to the coast of Georgia and the Carolinas.

Note that north of Duck, North Carolina, hazards from this system will be handled with non-tropical products issued by local National Weather Service offices.

The possible tropical storm originated in the Caribbean and is unrelated to Tropical Storm Harvey.

Earlier Sunday, the center said in a statement that a disturbance off the coast of Georgia had a 70 percent chance of "cyclone formation" within the next 48 hours.

The National Hurricane Center expects the storm to become a tropical depression or tropical storm within the next day or so.

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.

A flood watch remains in effect for parts of southern Florida where periods of heavy rainfall over saturated ground may lead to flooding. Occasional wind gusts over 40 miles per hour will be there, but unless they're stronger, wind damage is not expected. As of Sunday evening, the forecast track puts coastal communities at the greatest risk for heavy rain and gusty winds.

Although the potential impacts are within 36 hours, given the uncertainty in whether tropical storm force winds will occur on land in northeastern SC and southeastern North Carolina, south, a tropical storm watch has been issued for these areas.
