Tropical Storm Florence continues to push just west of Myrtle Beach, the system is moving slowly at about 2-3mph to the west.  Rain bands will periodically push into the Lowcountry into the overnight hours; a few embedded pockets of heavy downpours are possible.   Watch for isolated localized flooding within those heavier rain bands. Winds will be sustain between 15-20mph with gust upwards of 30+mph, with a saturated ground  any strong wind gust could bring down some tree limbs and power lines. Drive carefully if you plan to head out. Overnight lows will fall back into the 70s.

Florence will start to pull out of the Lowcountry during the day on Sunday, however, on the tail end expect the chance for scattered showers/storms. Any storms could produce heavy downpours and gusty winds. High temperatures will climb into 80s. 

We keep the chance for scattered showers/storm during the day on Monday and Tuesday as Florence finally pulls completely out of the southeast and heads to New England. South Carolina gets a chance to dry out for midweek before our chances for afternoon showers/storms moves increased again for the weekend.
