South Carolina possibly getting windier and wetter next week

A large non-tropical area of low pressure will likely develop in the southwestern Atlantic this weekend and track toward the Southeast U.S. It is expected to be very broad and disorganized at first, but if certain conditions are present, development into a sub-tropical or tropical system is possible early to mid-next week.

At this time, Florida and parts of Georgia would see the greatest impacts, but this slow-moving feature could bring very windy and rainy weather to South Carolina late Tuesday or Wednesday through late next week. Strong winds may lead to an increased risk for rip currents and beach erosion, while several inches of rain could cause local and coastal flooding.

There is still some uncertainty with the track and intensity of this system since it’s in the very early stages of evolution, so please keep checking back for the latest forecast and timing. And there is also no need to panic but prepare for possibly much windier and wetter weather next week.
