Tropical Depression Fred will bring rain to the Carolinas today

Hurricane Center

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) – Tropical Storm Fred made landfall in the Panhandle of Florida yesterday, weakening as it pushes further inland.

Fred has been downgraded to a Tropical Depression this morning and will continue to weaken as it pushes further inland today. Expect it to weaken to a remnant low later today and track far enough to the west that we’ll have very little impacts to the Carolinas. Our region will still be picking up rainfall and scattered storms as what’s left of Fred passes us to the west.
