LATITUDE 31.2 NORTH...LONGITUDE 80.5 WEST OR ABOUT 115 MILES
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF CHARLESTON SOUTH CAROLINA.

DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS. ON THIS TRACK...CHARLEY WILL BE NEARING
THE SOUTH CAROLINA COAST LATER TODAY...AND ARRIVING IN THE TRI-STATE 
REGION EARLY SUNDAY.

...PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
A TROPICAL STORM WATCH MEANS THAT TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS ARE 
EXPECTED WITHIN THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS. RESIDENTS SHOULD BEGIN TO 
PREPARE FOR THE ONSET OF WINDS IN EXCESS OF 39 MPH...SUCH AS 
SECURING LOOSE OUTDOOR FURNITURE AND OTHER OBJECTS.

...STORM SURGE FLOOD AND STORM TIDE IMPACTS...
STORM SURGES AHEAD OF CHARLEY MAY RANGE FROM 2 TO 3 FEET ABOVE 
NORMAL. WHILE WE ARE APPROACHING ASTRONOMICAL HIGH TIDES AS A 
RESULT OF A NEW MOON...THESE SURGES ARE EXPECTED TO ARRIVE DURING 
THE LOWER OF THE 2 HIGH TIDE CYCLES...THUS MINIMIZING THE THREAT FOR

ISLAND'S SOUTH SHORE.

WEEKS.

...RAINFALL...
PERIODS OF HEAVY RAINFALL WILL PRECEDE AND ACCOMPANY A WEAKENING

GENERALLY BE 1 TO 3 INCHES. SOME LOCAL AMOUNTS MAY APPROACH 5 
INCHES RIGHT ALONG THE PATH OF CHARLEY.

...MARINE INFORMATION...
SEAS WILL INCREASE TO 8 TO 10 FEET BY SUNDAY MORNING. THIS
WILL RESULT IN MODERATE BEACH EROSION...ESPECIALLY ALONG THE SOUTH 
SHORE OF LONG ISLAND.

...RIP CURRENT INFORMATION...
AN INCREASING THREAT OF RIP CURRENTS WILL CONTINUE ALONG THE COAST 
THROUGH SUNDAY. THESE DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS WILL BE LIFE 
THREATENING TO ANYONE WHO ENTERS THE WATER.
