Beach erosion possible through Saturday

Beach erosion possible through Saturday

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) A tropical area of low pressure that you've most likely heard of continues to bring the threat of rain with it but it also brings the threat for coastal flooding and beach erosion.

Windy conditions are going to be making the surf churn over the next few days. Winds could gust as high as 25mph. The winds will be coming from the north and northeast creating the perfect set up of erosion for some. We are going to be closely monitoring those low lying and typical areas where coastal flooding occurs over the next few days as well. We are not expecting a huge impact from that but as the winds blow the waves onshore the possibility is there.

High tides over the next couple days are as follows:

For Thursday September 24 - high tide is at 4:50 PM
For Friday September 25 - high tide is at 5:10 AM and 5:47 AM
For Saturday September 26 - high tide is a 6:08 AM and 6:41 PM

These are the times as which the most erosion will occur.

Once we get past Saturday the threat for erosion (and rain) goes way down and we will see beach conditions improve.

Use the WMBF First Alert weather app to track coastal water conditions and also to send in any pictures of erosion or effects from this tropical area of low pressure.
