Tropical Storm Watch issued for some coastal areas
TROPICAL STORM WATCH: Counties just north of the Charleston Area are under a Tropical storm watch including Georgetown and Murrells Inlet. Gale Warnings for the waters just off the Charleston coast as an area of low pressure spins up creating large waves and strong winds.
Today will be a wet, windy day as a potential tropical storm slides past us, just off our coast. Count on rain totals of 2-4 inches a long the coast with decreasing amounts as you head inland. Isolated areas could see as much as 6 inches.
The storm is expected to move out fairly quickly with things gradually quieting down Monday evening into Tuesday morning.
Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday don't look too bad with daytime highs in the mid-80's and mix of clouds and sun. Typical summer weather comes back Thursday through the weekend with daytime highs in the upper 80's, heat index values in the mid-90's, and typical afternoon thunderstorm chances.
Tropical Storm Harvey (formerly a hurricane) continues to churn over Texas bringing devastating floods to the region. Parts of Houston could see well over 30 inches of rain when all is finished. We're also watching a tropical wave off the coast of Africa that has a 20 percent chance of development over the next five days.
