The National Weather Service reported Saturday night that Bonnie, which officially was upgraded from a tropical depression Saturday afternoon, had strengthened a bit, with winds measured at 45 mph. The storm is forecast to move slowly west to northwest and make landfall Sunday night along the South Carolina coast.

Once Bonnie makes landfall, it’s expected to weaken into a tropical depression again, but move very slowly along the North Carolina and South Carolina coasts through Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. Winds are not expected to cause significant damage.

Scattered showers began falling late Saturday night and early Sunday morning in many areas of Bladen County. The National Weather Service expects periods of heavy rain and possible thunderstorms through Tuesday in Bladen.
