New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for inland
      Horry... coastal Horry... inland Georgetown and coastal Georgetown

* storm information:
    - about 210 miles south-southwest of Wilmington NC or about 150
      miles south of Myrtle Beach SC
    - 31.5n 79.4w
    - storm intensity 45 mph
    - movement north or 360 degrees at 6 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Storm Bonnie is centered about 150 miles south of Myrtle
Beach and is moving north at 6 mph. Maximum winds remain around
45 mph. This system will continue to move slowly to the north and the
center is expected to be very near the coast of SC later today. It
will then turn northeast and continue slowly along the South Carolina
and North Carolina coasts through Wednesday.

Rainfall over the next few days should average 2 to 4 inches. A few
locations may receive as much as 5 inches.

Rough surf and a high risk of rip currents can be expected along the
entire coast of South Carolina and southeastern North Carolina over
the next few days.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across southeast North Carolina and northeast South
Carolina. Potential impacts include:
    - localized flooding from rainfall may occur, especially in
      low-lying and poor drainage areas. Some rivers and creeks may
      rise as a result of the rain. Small streams, creeks, and
      ditches may overflow in some locations.
    - Several storm drains and retention ponds may become full and
      begin to overflow. Some brief Road closures are possible.

* Other coastal hazards:
strong rip currents are expected along area beaches through the
Holiday weekend.

* Wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
southeast North Carolina and northeast South Carolina. Potential
impacts include:
    - unsecured lightweight objects may be blown about.
    - Some large limbs may break from trees.

* Tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across coastal South Carolina. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.

Elsewhere across southeast North Carolina and northeast South
Carolina, little to no impact is anticipated.

Precautionary/preparedness actions

if you are a visitor and still in the area, listen for the name of
the city or town in which you are staying within local news updates.

      Horry... coastal Horry... inland Georgetown and coastal Georgetown

* storm information:

    - 31.0n 79.5w
    - storm intensity 45 mph
    - movement stationary

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Storm Bonnie has stalled off the South Carolina coast. The
system will take on a northwesterly movement and come ashore near
Charleston Sunday evening. It will then turn to the northeast and
continue up the North Carolina coast through Wednesday.

Rainfall over the next few days should average 2 to 4 inches. A few
locations may receive as much as 5 inches.

Rough surf and a high risk of rip currents can be expected along the
entire coast of South Carolina and southeastern North Carolina over
the next few days.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across southeast North Carolina and northeast South
Carolina. Potential impacts include:
    - localized flooding from rainfall may occur, especially in
      low-lying and poor drainage areas. Some rivers and creeks may
      rise as a result of the rain. Small streams, creeks, and
      ditches may overflow in some locations.
    - Several storm drains and retention ponds may become full and
      begin to overflow. Some brief Road closures are possible.

* Other coastal hazards:
strong rip currents are expected along area beaches through the
Holiday weekend.

* Wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
southeast North Carolina and northeast South Carolina. Potential
impacts include:
    - unsecured lightweight objects may be blown about.
    - Some large limbs may break from trees.

* Tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across coastal South Carolina. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.


Elsewhere across southeast North Carolina and northeast South
Carolina, little to no impact is anticipated.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------


* other preparedness information:
if you are a visitor and still in the area, listen for the name of
the city or town in which you are staying within local news updates.
Pay attention for instructions from local authorities.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to
the forecast.
