Tropical Storm Warning in effect for coastal counties in Ga., S.C.

11 p.m. advisory for Tropical Storm Isaias

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Isaias remains a Tropical Storm and is expecting to pass the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry Monday afternoon into the evening.

Some impacts are likely along our coastline and adjacent land areas. Though, it may be hard to get true, tropical storm conditions anywhere in the WTOC Viewing Area. Winds would have to be sustained at 39 MPH, or stronger, to be deemed “tropical-storm-force winds”. But, because the potential is there, a Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for all coastal counties.

Stormier weather is forecast to begin early Monday morning and persist, on and off, through early Monday evening; lingering the latest in Beaufort County. Spotty, to scattered, power outages and some tree damage is possible within the warned area; lesser impacts are forecast further inland.

Far-inland communities, like Swainsboro, Statesboro and Baxley may not see much more than a stronger breeze and spotty downpours Monday.

The forecast quickly improves from southwest, to northeast, Monday evening and night.
