The storm is expected to cause rough seas and increasing winds along the Georgia, Carolina and Virginia coasts through mid-week, forecasters said.

Tropical storm wind conditions with wind speeds of 20-30 miles per hour and gusts up to 50 mph are possible along the Grand Strand through Tuesday, according to the watch advisory.

IN THE TROPICS, Tropical Storm Harvey continues to meander over southeastern Texas with little movement expected over the next several days.

Tropical storm watches have been issued for parts of the South and North Carolina coast from South Santee River, South Carolina, to Duck, North Carolina.

The National Hurricane Center has issued its first advisory for Potential Tropical Cyclone 10, the tenth disturbance they have issued an advisory for during the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season.

The wanna-be Irma was trying to develop off of Georgia's coast on Sunday and chances of the low pressure system churning into a tropical or subtropical cyclone were gaining strength.

Depending on how closely the low tracks to the Southeast coast early this week, areas as far north as the coastal Carolinas could see bands of heavy rain.

"The main impacts for the beaches will be heavy rainfall, which will add up to 3" to 6". Overnight, expect plenty of clouds and rain chances to increase into Tuesday. Strong and damaging winds are not likely. On the forecast track, the system will move slowly toward the SC coast tonight and Monday.
