SITUATION OVERVIEW
——————

TROPICAL STORM BONNIE LOCATED ABOUT 50 MILES SOUTHEAST OF
CHARLESTON IS MOVING NORTH AT 8 MPH. THE STORM WILL MOVE NORTH
NEARING THE SOUTH CAROLINA COAST BY THIS AFTERNOON AND THEN WILL BEGIN
TO MOVE SLOWLY NORTHEAST AWAY FROM THE AREA MONDAY.

THE MAIN IMPACTS FROM THIS SYSTEM ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN MAINLY OVER
THE NORTHERN COASTAL REGIONS WITHIN THE TROPICAL STORM WARNING AREA.
TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS OF UP TO 40 MPH, ESPECIALLY WITHIN
RAINBANDS, WILL BE POSSIBLE MAINLY ALONG THE COAST THROUGH TONIGHT.
THESE WINDS MAY BRING DOWN SOME TREE BRANCHES OR SMALL LIMBS, PRODUCE
HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS OVER BRIDGES, AND CAUSE SOME SCATTERED
POWER OUTAGES.

LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN WILL OCCUR AT TIMES THROUGH AT LEAST TONIGHT, EVEN
OUTSIDE OF AREAS INCLUDED IN THE TROPICAL STORM WARNING. ADDITIONAL
RAINFALL OF 1 TO 3 INCHES WITH HIGHER AMOUNTS WILL PUSH STORM TOTAL
RAINFALL AMOUNTS UP TO 2 TO 4 INCHES ACROSS SOUTHEAST SOUTH CAROLINA…
WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS NEAR 8 INCHES POSSIBLE. 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.
ISOLATED, FLASH FLOODING IS POSSIBLE.

THERE IS AN ELEVATED RISK FOR LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS AT AREA
BEACHES TODAY.
