Potential Tropical Cyclone #10 moves away early Tuesday
POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE #10
Low pressure riding up the coast will have little additional impact on our weather. In fact, it's already moving away from us this Tuesday morning. Here's what to expect for the rest of the day:
RAIN - Perhaps an additional half-inch of rain on the north end of the Grand Strand otherwise .00" to .25" across the area. Flooding is not an issue at all and little to rain is expected after 8am Tuesday.
WIND - Expect winds to gust between 20-30 mph near the coast and 15-25 mph inland. Wind damage and power outages are not expected.
BEACH - Due to the prolonged northeast flow, the ocean will be rough, waves big and the rip current risk high. Some minor beach erosion is possible as well. As the wind turns northwest by Tuesday morning, the seas will settle down and a moderate rip current risk with ensue.
RIVER - The Waccamaw River at Conway is forecast to reach minor flood stage by Thursday. The impact won't be significant, but keep an eye on the forecast if you live along or nearby the river. The forecast crest around 11.5 feet is more than 6 feet lower than what we had with Matthew.
