CHARLESTON, South Carolina — The National Weather Service in Charleston is warning of the possibility of rip currents and high surf along the South Carolina coast over the next several days as a storm system moves up the Atlantic Coast.

There's a low pressure system about 220 miles off the North Carolina-South Carolina border and the National Hurricane Center says there's about a 70 percent chance it could form into a tropical or subtropical storm in the next day or so.

Forecasters warn of rip currents along the coast Thursday and have posted a high surf advisory effective from late Thursday morning through Friday afternoon.

Forecasters say the effects of the storm depend on its strength and how close it gets to the coast.
