Tracking Heavy Showers, Tropical Disturbance Off Coast

This system may develop into a tropical cyclone tonight or tomorrow as it moves up the SE coast.

While Hurricane Harvey devastates the western Gulf Coast region, a weak tropical system may form off the Southeastern U.S. coast early this week, per the National Weather Service office in Newport/Morehead City.

This is also the time when heavy rain and wind could impact Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington. These are trying to organize into a tropical system, but haven't been able to just yet. The Hurricane Center may fly a plane out to investigate the area of low pressure later today.

"The main impacts for the beaches will be heavy rainfall, which will add up to 3" to 6".

Potential tropical cyclone ten has formed off the Georgia coast. The system is forecast to move near the northeastern coast of SC and along the North Carolina coast Monday night and Tuesday. Strong and damaging winds are not likely. That would result in gusty northeast winds, high surf, rip currents and possible coastal flooding from Georgia to the mid-Atlantic.

Closer to home, there is a broad low pressure stretching across north-central Florida producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms.

The system is then forecast to hug the coast of North and South Carolina Monday evening into Tuesday morning.

Inland areas will see some rain and wind, but a lot less than locations along the coast. Rough surf will bring a greater danger to swimmers and surfers with rip currents as well.
