Debby’s South Carolina impact expected to be minimal

jholleman@thestate.comJune 26, 2012 

Computer models are still less than certain about the path of Tropical Storm Debby, but the consensus hints that South Carolina’s beaches could get some rough surf this weekend.

The National Hurricane Center’s five-day forecast has the currently stalled center of the system moving from the Gulf of Mexico across northern Florida late in the week and into the Atlantic on Friday or Saturday. At that point, the system is expected to parallel the coast (possibly pumping waves and some strong winds toward the South Carolina beaches) or continue out into the Atlantic.

The system is unlikely to raise above tropical storm strength, according to the forecasts.
