The Lowcountry will experience warm arm but mostly clear skies throughout this week as the effects of Hurricane Cristobal remain well offshore.
The storm on Tuesday morning was packing 75-mph sustained wind about 670 miles southeast of Charleston. It was moving northward at 12 mph, but it was expected to curve northeastward and move well out to sea, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami.
Beachgoers in South Carolina should be most concerned with strong rip currents and rough waves that could pose a danger to surfers and swimmers.
The National Weather Service again warned everyone to stay out of the Atlantic Ocean because of the life-threatening conditions.
Otherwise, here is the tranquil forecast from the Weather Service station for the Charleston area:
Tuesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 87. South wind 5 to 14 mph becoming northeast in the morning.
