MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – The National Weather Service has issued a tropical storm warning for our coastal waters, set to continue until tomorrow morning.
Tropical Depression Claudette is expected to re-strengthen into a tropical storm as it moves further into North Carolina late tonight into early Monday.
The National Hurricane Center issued a Tropical storm watch for coastal Horry and Georgetown County, this morning due, in part, to an increasing wind threat. Models showed Claudette will redevelop into a tropical storm as it tracks into North Carolina, nears the Gulf Stream, and encounters less wind shear.
As Claudette moves further off to the northeast we will see quieter weather for the rest of the evening.
Later into Monday conditions will dry out with sunshine working to break out. Highs there will be rising back towards the upper 80s and lower 90s. Another cold front will be pressing across the Carolinas on Tuesday, yet again bringing us the potential for severe weather. Isolated storms will then linger later into the workweek. Please remain with us for more storm updates.
TONIGHT: Scatterd showers. Lows in the mid to low 70s.
TOMORROW: Lingering showers and storms to afternoon sun. Highs in the upper 80s to low 90s.
