CAROLINA BEACH - It's 2020, so cue up Mother Nature and the impending hurricane season.
On July 7th, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) issued a warning to coastal areas of North and South Carolina.
The NHC explained on Tuesday, "For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: 1. An area of low pressure located inland along the Georgia-South Carolina border southeast of Augusta, Georgia, continues to produce  a large area of showers and heavy rain over portions of the southeastern United States. The low is expected to move slowly  eastward overnight before turning east-northeastward on Wednesday."
The NHC explained, "By Wednesday night and Thursday, the system is forecast to move generally northeastward near or just offshore the coast of the  Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic states, and a tropical or  subtropical cyclone could form later this week if the low moves over the warm waters of the western Atlantic. Regardless of development, the low is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall that could cause flash flooding across portions of the southeastern  U.S. during the next couple of days.
- Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent.
- Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.
