11am Isaias Forecast: SC Hurricane Landfall

Isaias holding steady at 70 mph. I am monitoring that window of opportunity I’ve been telling you about for Isaias to get stronger. Between now and landfall, the storm is entering an area that could favor some strengthening. I expect a hurricane at landfall near Myrtle Beach this evening. Conditions will go downhill quickly in Charleston points north this afternoon I’ll keep you posted!
