RAINFALL:  Bonnie is expected to produce additional rainfall
accumulations of 1 to 2 inches across east-central Georgia, central
and eastern South Carolina, and eastern North Carolina with isolated
maximum amounts near 4 inches. Farther north, the moisture from
Bonnie will produce additional rainfall amounts of up to 2 inches
across eastern portions of the mid-Atlantic region into southern New
England through Wednesday.

Total rainfall of more than 8 inches has already occurred over large
portions of south-central South Carolina.

SURF: Bonnie is expected to produce dangerous surf and rip current
