    SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:

    A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for...
    * Edisto Beach to South Santee River South Carolina

    A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are
    expected somewhere within the warning area, in this case within the
    next 6 hours.

    For storm information specific to your area, including possible
    inland watches and warnings, please monitor products issued by your
    local National Weather Service forecast office.


    DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
    ----------------------
    At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Danny was
    located near latitude 32.3 North, longitude 80.1 West. Danny is
    moving toward the west-northwest near 16 mph (26 km/h) and this
    general motion is expected to continue into Tuesday. On the
    forecast track, Danny will make landfall along the southern coast
    of South Carolina early this evening, and move into east-central
    Georgia late tonight and early Tuesday morning.

    Data from NOAA Doppler radars and reconnaissance aircraft indicate
    that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 45 mph (75 km/h)
    with higher gusts. No change in strength is expected until landfall
    occurs in a few hours. Rapid weakening is forecast after Danny
    moves inland.

    Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km)
    from the center.

    The minimum central pressure based on reports from An Air Force
    Reserve Unit reconnaissance aircraft is estimated to be 1009 mb
    (29.80 inches).


    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
    ----------------------
    WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the
    coast within the warning area very soon making outside preparations
    difficult or dangerous.

    RAINFALL: Danny could produce 1 to 3 inches of rainfall with
    locally higher amounts along the immediate coasts of Georgia and
    southern South Carolina. This region has been dry, limiting
    potential widespread flooding impacts, however, local flooding
    impacts, especially in urban areas along the southern South Carolina
    and Georgia coasts, cannot be ruled out at this time.

    Farther inland, 1 to 2 inches of rainfall is possible across Upstate
    South Carolina, the Piedmont of Georgia, and into northeastern
    Alabama.

    STORM SURGE: The combination of storm surge and the tide will cause
    normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters
    moving inland from the shoreline. The water could reach the
    following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if
    the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

    Port Royal Sound, SC to South Santee River, SC...1 to 3 ft

    Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge
    and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances. For information specific to your area, please see products issued by
    your local National Weather Service forecast office.

    TORNADOES: An isolated tornado will be possible this evening along
    the South Carolina coast.
