Hurricane Center monitoring potential tropical system

Tracking the Tropics

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The National Hurricane Center is closely monitoring a low-pressure system which is said to be near the Georgia and Tennessee border.

The forecast shows the system moving southward into the Gulf of Mexico and expected to be between the middle to the end of the week.

Forecasters with the NHC say conditions are favorable to tropical development if the low travels to the Gulf – with an 80% chance of tropical formation over the next five days.

This would be our second named storm of the season known as Barry.

Those living in western Florida could expect heavy rain by the end of the week.
