Special Report: Tropical Threat

The Weather Channel Goes into Extended Coverage

The Weather Channel is going into extended coverage this weekend to cover the tropical threat heading toward the Carolina coasts. The network will be live Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29 from 5 a.m. to midnight ET. 

Meteorologists Reynolds Wolf and Mike Seidel alongside correspondent Dave Malkoff will be live throughout the South Carolina coast all weekend covering the storm. While in the field, they will be doing Facebook LIVE on the network's brand account. 

An area of low pressure northeast of the Bahamas may become a tropical or subtropical depression or storm Friday into the weekend, and may soak parts of the Southeast coast during the Memorial Day weekend. This morning, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said that this system now has a 90 percent chance of developing into a subtropical or tropical depression or storm in the next two days. The next named storm of the 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season will be given the name Bonnie.
