... National hurricane preparedness week continues...

Whenever a tropical cyclone threatens South Carolina or Georgia the
National Weather Service office in Charleston closely coordinates with
the National Hurricane Center. Today we will discuss the roles of each
office during the tropical cyclone forecast process.

National Hurricane Center...

The National Hurricane Center is responsible for monitoring the Atlantic
Basin for tropical cyclones. Once a tropical cyclone has formed the
National Hurricane Center will provide the track and intensity
forecasts for the storm via public advisories and numerous other
products. These products will contain potential impacts across the
United States in broad terms. If there is a significant threat for
tropical storm or hurricane force winds along the coast they will
coordinate the issuance of tropical storm or hurricane watches and
warnings with the appropriate weather forecast offices. Watches are
normally issued when tropical storm or hurricane force winds are
possible within 48 hours and warnings are issued when such
conditions are expected within 36 hours.

Charleston National Weather Service forecast office...

The Charleston National Weather Service forecast office is
responsible for issuing tropical cyclone products to inform local
media... the public and other government agencies on the anticipated
impacts across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia.
Potential impacts from storm surge... wind... tornadoes and heavy
rainfall will be provided via impact graphics which are available on
the internet at weather.Gov/tcig.
