According to the National Weather Service, a system developing off the coast of Georgia is expected to move along the North Carolina coast Monday and Tuesday.

Invest 92L could become a Tropical Storm Irma soon.

An area of low pressure off the Southeast coast has become better organized and it could become the next Atlantic tropical cyclone early this week.


The National Weather Service in Wilmington, North Carolina has issued a tropical storm watch after low pressure off the Georgia Coast may become a tropical storm as it moves northward towards the SC and North Carolina coast Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning. At this current time, Tropical Storm Harvey is forecast to move northward, closer to Houston, by the middle of the next work week.

The hurricane center said tropical storm watches could be needed for parts of the Carolinas later today. That rainfall could contribute to localized flooding from a tropical moisture surge associated with this system. These breezes could generate just enough lift for a few showers in north Georgia or western NC, but most areas stay dry with highs in the 79-84 degree range.

The forecast says that the system will move slowly toward the SC coast Sunday night and Monday.
