A low pressure system located north of Myrtle Beach could become a tropical depression or storm as it moves northeast tonight, but National Weather Service meteorologist Stephen Keebler said local impacts will be minimal.
“As we go through the afternoon and overnight hours it’s…starting to accelerate slowly off to the northeast,” he said. “As a matter of fact, probably the most impacts we had from it occurred yesterday with the heavy rain we had, that was kind of an extension of the storm when it was down in Florida.”
This afternoon, the effects felt by Wrightsville Beach will mainly be high surf and wind, Keebler added.
“The seas have gotten worked up, pretty big,” he said. “…But the winds will turn offshore and certainly decrease quickly as the evening and overnight goes on.”
