Disturbance To Pelt North Carolina Coast With Rain, Gusty Wind

Into Wednesday, a non-tropical system to the north will help add wind along the coast from Georgia to MA and add spin to the tropical disturbance.

In Texas, Tropical Storm Harvey continued crawling along the coast, with sustained winds of 50 miles per hour and "catastrophic" rains, forecasters said.

A weather system off Africa that's being monitored by the National Hurricane Center is likely to develop as it approaches the eastern Atlantic Ocean, forecasters said Tuesday.

Heavy rain is expected to be the main hazard.

Over the past 50 years, the average date for formation of the ninth named storm is September 30, and the 10th is October 14.

This storm's rainfall forecast has been quite muddled, as models flip-flopped between "pretty dry" and "very wet" solutions.

Heavy rain is the biggest threat to the coastal communities.

PTC 10 is not an incredibly strong storm, so wind damage is not an incredibly high concern.

Charleston County increased its status to OPCON 4 as of 1 p.m., citing the possibility of wind gusts up to 30 to 35 miles per hour, showers with thunderstorms and coastal flooding. Minor damage to weak structures, downed trees and power lines are possible with this storm.

The storm was not well organized this morning. Following early showers, skies will clear at least partially by lunchtime. Rough surf may continue to be a problem. It may not make 70 degrees even in Roanoke - mid 80s highs are normal for late August. As always, there's the chance we could see a very unsafe storm come our way before the season is over - remember, Hugo, the Historic Floods of 2015 and Hurricane Matthew all occurred in October.

While the aforementioned cold front won't generate much in the way of rain as it passes later Thursday, it will deliver a shot of cooler air to wrap up the work and school week.

For vacationers at Myrtle Beach, it was a rainy day Monday, and Tuesday will likely be another day out of the water thanks to a double red flag warning at the beach. Another taste of Fall. It will be mostly sunny with low humidity, so it will be a great day for outdoor Labor Day weekend plans! The aforementioned weekend looks to start out nicely.
