MONITOR TROPICAL STORM ELSA FOR ANY NORTH MYRTLE BEACH IMPACTS
Weakening is forecast as Tropical Storm Elsa moves NE through the Southeast States later Wednesday into Thursday.
Heavy rain across the coastal Carolinas may produce isolated flash and urban flooding Wednesday night through Thursday evening. Isolated tornadoes are also possible. Wind gusts of 35 to 45 mph are possible late Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon, mainly near the coast and offshore. Dangerous swells will result in a high rip current risk, especially at south-facing beaches on Thursday.
Conditions should improve by Thursday evening as the system moves to the northeast.
