How will Hurricane Ian impact weather in Charleston this week?
Ian was upgraded to a Category 1 Hurricane early Monday morning, but it is expected to intensify as it heads towards Cuba and the western Florida coast. The storm will probably get weaker as it gets closer to Florida this week.
If Ian were to hit from the Atlantic, it would be a direct hit on our coast. The storm will come out of the Gulf of Mexico and will have plenty of land interaction before it gets to South Carolina.
Storm Team 2 is keeping a close eye on two different scenarios for impacts from Hurricane Ian. Scenario one would be a closer approach – Hurricane Ian makes landfall around Florida’s big bend. A hurricane is a big storm that has lots of wind and rain. It can be dangerous if it comes near where people live. This hurricane is going to pass through our area later in the week, so we have to be careful. If a tropical depression comes ashore, it would give us heavy rain, flooding, gusty winds, and an increased risk of tornadoes.
A tropical system is a type of storm that forms over warm ocean waters. These storms can bring strong winds and heavy rains. The Gulf of Mexico is a place where these storms often form and then make landfall, which means they come ashore onto land. The three things we typically get out of these types of storms from that area are rain, wind, and tornadoes. This is saying that if the hurricane hits Scenario 2, it would have less of an impact on us than if it hits Scenario 1. But we would still see some heavy rain and a strong wind.
According to Marthers, the rain amounts would be less.
The Storm Team 2 said that the most likely scenario, based on the guidance from the National Hurricane Center, is for scenario one to play out for us late this week. However, we cannot yet rule out scenario two.
Ian's showers would hit on Thursday and Friday with the rain lingering into the weekend.
This is a reminder that we are in the middle of hurricane season and we could see some storms.
