Isaias will approach the Carolina coast as a strong tropical storm OR "weak" category one hurricane tonight, with 75 mph winds.

Isaias is expected to make landfall this evening in the Myrtle Beach area. 

Rain moves into the Upstate area after combining with tropical moisture to produce storms in the area.  

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for McDowell, Yancey and Mitchell counties until 8 AM Tuesday morning as some heavy downpours could linger causing issues.  We don't expect a widespread flood threat, but some areas could see too much rain too quickly.

Isaias will accelerate away from the SC coast Tuesday. This will dry out our weather a bit, leaving a 20% chance for rain in the afternoon and highs in the 80s.

We'll get a return to typical early August weather for the rest of the week - isolated afternoon showers and storms with highs in the 80s to near 90 degrees.
