Tropical Depression #3 Forms

As of 10 PM Friday night, tropical depression number 3 is born. This area of low pressure is just off the coast of South Carolina and will be slowly working its way up the east coast. Over the weekend, the system is expected to become a tropical storm and will be given the name Cristobal. As of right now, it is not expected to become a hurricane. The main impacts of this storm will be high surf on the Carolina's coastline and some rain. The worst of the storm will stay off shore. Head over to the Hurricane Center on the weather page to get the latest on the tropics. I still think we will have number 4 in the Caribbean by Saturday or Sunday. Stay tuned!
