As expected, this storm will have no chance of transitioning into a tropical or subtropical system before moving ashore in the Carolinas. Either way, the southeast can expect heavy rain and wind.
For Florida, drier air will spread out back allowing most of the holiday weekend to be dry. Beach conditions, however, will be dangerous.
Expect breaking waves of up to 10 feet through Saturday. The threat of rip current will also be high. The surface will gradually stabilize over the holiday weekend, but the risk of rip currents will remain high.
Minor coastal flooding is also possible along the immediate coast from overland flow and large breaking waves.
