New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - the Tropical Storm Warning for inland
      Jasper... Beaufort... coastal Colleton and coastal Jasper has
      been cancelled

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for inland
      Berkeley... Charleston and tidal Berkeley

* storm information:
    - about 50 miles southeast of Charleston SC
    - 32.1n 79.4w
    - storm intensity 40 mph
    - movement north or 360 degrees at 8 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Storm Bonnie located about 50 miles southeast of
Charleston is moving north at 8 mph. The storm will move north
nearing the South Carolina coast by this afternoon and then will begin
to move slowly northeast away from the area Monday.

The main impacts from this system are expected to remain mainly over
the northern coastal regions within the Tropical Storm Warning area.
Tropical storm force winds of up to 40 mph... especially within
rainbands... will be possible mainly along the coast through tonight.
These winds may bring down some tree branches or small limbs... produce
hazardous driving conditions over bridges... and cause some scattered
power outages.

Locally heavy rain will occur at times through at least tonight... even
outside of areas included in the Tropical Storm Warning. Additional
rainfall of 1 to 3 inches with higher amounts will push storm total
rainfall amounts up to 2 to 4 inches across southeast South Carolina...
with locally higher amounts near 8 inches possible. There will be a
risk for minor flooding... mainly in low lying and poorly drained areas
near the South Carolina coast close to the times of high tide.
Isolated... flash flooding is possible.

There is an elevated risk for life threatening rip currents at area
beaches today. Some beach erosion can also occur along the Charleston
County coast at least through tonight.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across southeast South Carolina. Potential
impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding could prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries could quickly rise with swifter
      currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches could
      become swollen and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in normally
      vulnerable spots. Rapid ponding of water could occur at
      underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage areas. Several
      storm drains and retention ponds become near-full and begin to
      overflow. Some brief Road and bridge closures.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

* Wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
mainly Charleston and portions of Berkeley County. Potential impacts
in this area include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable due to debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded locations. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways, especially for high
      profile vehicles.
    - Isolated to scattered power and communications outages.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

* Other coastal hazards:
there is an increased risk for life threatening rip currents at area
beaches. Some beach erosion can also occur along the Charleston County coast
at least today.

* Surge:
protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts across Charleston County. Potential impacts in
this area include:
    - localized inundation of saltwater mainly along immediate
      shorelines and in low-lying spots farther inland near rivers
      and creeks.
    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread
      with surge water. Driving conditions hazardous in places where
      surge water covers the Road.
    - Minor to moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf possibly breaching
      dunes, mainly in normally vulnerable locations. Strong rip
      currents.
    - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks,
      and piers. A few small craft broken away from moorings.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

* Tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across coastal sections of the Charleston Metro area. Potential impacts
include:
    - isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution of emergency plans.
    - Isolated locations could experience tornado damage, along with
      power and communications disruptions.
    - In isolated locations, tornadoes could damage trees, vehicles,
      boats and buildings, especially Mobile homes and and other
      poorly constructed structures.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Storm Bonnie located about 130 miles south-southeast of
Charleston has at least temporarily stalled... but should resume a
slow motion towards the South Carolina coast later tonight. This storm
will likely remain near or around the region through Monday.

The main impacts from this system are expected to remain mainly over
the coastal regions within the Tropical Storm Warning area. Tropical
storm force winds of up to 45 mph... especially within rainbands... will
be possible through Sunday. These winds may bring down some tree
branches or small limbs... produce hazardous driving conditions over
bridges... and cause some scattered power outages.

The rain could become locally heavy at times through at least Sunday
night. Additional rainfall of 1 to 3 inches with higher amounts will
push storm total rainfall amounts up to 2 to 4 inches across southeast
South Carolina... with locally higher amounts near 6 inches possible...
especially along the coast. There will be a risk for minor flooding...
mainly in low lying and poorly drained areas near the South Carolina
coast close to the times of high tide. However... significant flash
flooding is not expected at this time. Rainfall totals will be highly
dependent on the movement of Bonnie.

At the coast and beaches... there is an increased risk for life
threatening rip currents... with some beach erosion along the southeast
South Carolina and southeast Georgia coasts through the Holiday
weekend.

          normally vulnerable spots. Rapid ponding of water could
          occur at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
