Ophelia sets her sights on the Carolinas

Hurricane Ophelia seems to have Carolina on her mind. A Hurricane Watch is now in effect for all of South Carolina up to Cape Lookout, NC. The storm is down to 976 mb but winds continue to hover at hurricane threshold intensity. The best guess right now if for a landing somewhere in the Carolinas are Ophelia backs up towards the coast. The storm remains very well organized but she is having issues intensifying in the face of moderate shear and plenty of dry air from the continent.
