Potential Tropical Cyclone Ten forms off the Georgia coast

Patrick’s First Warning Forecast Developing storm will bring an end to the party

For updates on the low off our coast early next week plus the latest on Hurricane Harvey off the Texas coast, tune in for our tropical updates at:21 after every hour on Spectrum News.

The system is forecast to move near the northeastern coast of SC and along the North Carolina coast Monday night and Tuesday. Whether this storm becomes Tropical Storm Irma or not doesn't actually matter too much, the impacts will be gusty winds and rain either way.

The low pressure system located off the coast of Florida has strengthened and is now being referred to as Potential Tropical Cyclone Ten.

A tropical storm watch was issued Sunday evening for the North Carolina as a storm is expected to move through the area over the coming days.

On Sunday, the National Hurricane Center projected a 50 percent chance that the system would develop into a tropical or subtropical storm. That rainfall could contribute to localized flooding from a tropical moisture surge associated with this system.

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.

Moderate to strong rip currents and high and rough surf conditions along with rain and thunderstorms that may turn heavy across portions of the area are expected through the early week.

The forecast models keep the center of the system near the coast as it continues to move towards the northeast.
