Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 PM EDT Sat Aug 17 2019

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

A small low pressure system located along the South Carolina coast
about midway between Myrtle Beach and Charleston is producing
disorganized showers and thunderstorms.  Tropical development of
this system is expected to be slow to occur tonight and Sunday due
to proximity to land as the disturbance moves northeastward along or
near the coast of the Carolinas.  By early Monday, however, the low
is expected to move over the warmer Atlantic waters, where some
further organization could occur.  The low is forecast to produce
heavy rainfall along with a threat of flash flooding in eastern
portions of South and North Carolina through Sunday.  Please see
products from your local National Weather Service office or the
Weather Prediction Center's Excessive Rainfall Outlook for more
information.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
