SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

TROPICAL DEPRESSION 2 HAS NOT STRENGTHENED SINCE THE LAST ADVISORY...BUT
COULD STILL STRENGTHEN TO A MINIMAL TROPICAL STORM LATER TODAY OR
TONIGHT AS IT CONTINUES TO MOVE TOWARD THE SOUTH CAROLINA COAST. THE
STORM IS EXPECTED TO SLOW DOWN AS IT APPROACHES THE SOUTH CAROLINA
COAST...AND WILL LIKELY REMAIN NEAR OR AROUND THE REGION THROUGH
MONDAY.

THE MAIN IMPACTS FROM THIS SYSTEM ARE STILL EXPECTED TO BE CONFINED TO
THE COASTAL REGIONS WITHIN THE TROPICAL STORM WARNING AREA. TROPICAL
STORM FORCE WIND GUSTS OF UP TO 45 MPH...ESPECIALLY WITHIN RAINBANDS...
WILL BE POSSIBLE THROUGH EARLY MONDAY. THESE WINDS MAY DOWN SOME TREE
BRANCHES OR SMALL LIMBS...PRODUCE HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS OVER
BRIDGES...AND CAUSE SOME SCATTERED POWER OUTAGES.

RAIN COULD BECOME LOCALLY HEAVY AT TIMES BY LATER THIS AFTERNOON
THROUGH AT LEAST SUNDAY. STORM TOTAL RAINFALL OF 2 TO 4 INCHES IS
EXPECTED ACROSS SOUTHEAST SOUTH CAROLINA...WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS
POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY ALONG THE COAST. THERE WILL BE A RISK FOR MINOR
FLOODING...MAINLY IN LOW LYING AND POORLY DRAINED AREAS NEAR THE SOUTH
CAROLINA COAST CLOSE TO THE TIMES OF HIGH TIDE. HOWEVER...SIGNIFICANT
FLASH FLOODING IS NOT EXPECTED AT THIS TIME. THE AMOUNT OF RAIN THE
AREA RECEIVES WILL BE HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON THE EXACT TRACK AND SPEED OF
THE STORM.

AT THE COAST AND BEACHES...THERE WILL BE INCREASED RISK FOR STRONGER
AND MORE FREQUENT RIP CURRENTS AS WELL AS SOME BEACH EROSION ALONG THE
SOUTHEAST SOUTH CAROLINA AND SOUTHEAST GEORGIA COASTS THROUGH THE
HOLIDAY WEEKEND.
