Potential Tropical Cyclone Ten forms off the Georgia coast

Potential Tropical Cyclone Ten forms off the Georgia coast

Talk about a double whammy!

Monday: Rain and thunderstorms linger in Florida and spread into eastern North Carolina and eastern Virginia. There is a high potential this low pressure system could get stronger and become a tropical depression or a tropical storm.

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

Depending on how closely the low tracks to the Southeast coast early this week, areas as far north as the coastal Carolinas could see bands of heavy rain.

A Hurricane Harvey inflicts an historic and deadly flood catastrophe on Texas, forecasters are keeping an eye on another system in the Atlantic that may take on tropical characteristics later.

While forecast confidence for the rest of the week has not improved greatly due to uncertainty with Harvey's low pressure center, rain chances could gradually increase toward late week IF some of its moisture tries to move in our direction.

Coastal winds will peak on Tuesday gusting between 25 and 35 miles per hour from the east. Winds will eventually shift to the north Tuesday night into Wednesday.

On Sunday, the National Hurricane Center projected a 50 percent chance that the system would develop into a tropical or subtropical storm. By Monday afternoon and evening, most of the beaches will be dealing with rounds of these heavy showers.
