The Category 2 storm is forecast to slow down as it nears landfall and could “linger near the coast,” causing heavy rain and strong winds in the area for extended periods of time, according to the National Weather Service in Charleston.
“It’s not expected to make landfall as a major hurricane anymore,” Christina Speciale, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Charleston said. “We’re expecting it to weaken even further to a tropical storm once it enters into South Carolina.”
