MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) -  The 5 a.m. update shows there is now a Tropical Storm Warning for Horry and Georgetown County. That was upgraded from a TS watch.  

Andrea is maintaining Tropical Storm status as of the 5 a.m. update. Winds within the storm are 60mph.

Storm Team Meteorologist Marla Branson says it looks like TS Andrea will pick up forward speed throughout the morning and start to turn to the northeast. No significant strengthening is expected.

Model consensus is showing more of an inland track with the storm nearly right over us by 8am Friday as a weak tropical storm.

As for threats, here's what you need to know. The biggest threat will be flooding from the heavy rain, both inland and along the coast. We are expecting 2-4" on top of whatever we get early in the day today.

Coastal flooding, from the ocean and storm surge,  is less of a threat. Garden City and the usual flood prone areas could get some over-wash and minor flooding Friday morning.

Tropical Cyclone tornadoes are a minor threat and will depend on how organized Andrea can get. The best location for these TC Tornadoes will be just east of the center of the storm.
