Shower and thunderstorm activity has increased in coverage and gradually become better organized, and the low is likely to become a tropical depression or tropical storm in the next day or so.

Regardless of whether the system is tropical or non tropical, gusty winds and rough seas are expected along the coast with enhanced chances of rip currents.

A tropical storm WATCH has been issued for parts of the SC/NC coasts, including Myrtle Beach. The National Hurricane Center says there is a moderate chance it could develop into a weak tropical system. These are trying to organize into a tropical system, but haven't been able to just yet.

While Hurricane Harvey devastates the western Gulf Coast region, a weak tropical system may form off the Southeastern U.S. coast early this week, per the National Weather Service office in Newport/Morehead City.

The low pressure system located off the coast of Florida has strengthened and is now being referred to as Potential Tropical Cyclone Ten. That may be enough to cause flooding across the coastal communities.

Computer forecast models show the storm moving very close to the coasts of South and North Carolina before heading off to the northeast and out to sea.

The heaviest rains Sunday were expected in the Naples area, Baxter said.

"Conditions over the waters are going to be pretty rough, with unsafe rip currents and hazardous seas", said Emily Timte, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Charleston.
