TROPICAL STORM IDALIA - AUGUST 28 UPDATE
As the accompanying potential forecast illustrations show, South Carolina and the City of North Myrtle Beach are currently in the picture for experiencing impacts from Tropical Storm Idalia.
There is still a lot of time for adjustments to the path to occur, but Tropical Storm Idalia is currently moving slowly over the NW Caribbean and expected to increase in forward speed as it tracks north northeastward on Tuesday, before approaching the Gulf coast of Florida early Wednesday morning as a major hurricane.
The primary concern for our area will be the threat of heavy rainfall and flooding, especially as the system passes near the South Carolina coast late Wednesday into Wednesday night. Due to King Tides this week, areas along the coast should pay close attention to high-tide cycles.
Please tune in to your favorite weather provider over the next several days as this hurricane continues to develop.
