UPDATE 6/28/21 3 PM

NHC has upgraded Tropical Depression #4 to Tropical Storm Danny. Hurricane hunters found lower surface pressures and winds of tropical storm force, hence the upgrade. The storm has a few more hours over the Gulf Stream before landfall occurs later this evening. Tropical Storm Warnings continue for the SC coast through tonight.

UPDATE 6/28/21 11 AM

NHC is issuing advisories for newly formed Tropical Depression #4 which is located just off the SC coast. The storm is expected to move west toward the SC coast tonight and make landfall by Monday evening. There will be a threat for gusty wind and heavy rainfall as the storm approaches the coast later today into tonight. The center is still exposed due to moderate upper level wind shear so any intensification will be slow to occur, however it will be moving over the very warm waters of the Gulf Stream in the next few hours. Tropical Storm Warnings are now in effect from Edisto Beach SC to South Santee River.

FOX 4 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST DEREK BEASLEY

UPDATE 6/28/21 8 AM

NHC is monitoring an area of low pressure just east of the GA/SC (designated tropical wave, Invest 96L) that has a HIGH chance of becoming the next tropical system in the Atlantic. As of 8 AM, it continues to move west with a naked swirl of clouds appearing on satellite, indicating that the center is exposed due to some easterly wind shear over the system. This wind shear is blowing the thunderstorms away from the center, preventing even more rapid organization. As the system moves over the Gulf Stream, there is a chance that we could see further organization and advisories and possible tropical storm warnings may be needed for the SC/GA coast later today.
