Bonnie has weakened to a Post-Tropical Cyclone and continues to slowly move north along the Atlantic coastline.

Bonnie weakened from a Tropical Storm to a Tropical Depression early Sunday and was again downgraded to a Post-Tropical Cyclone on Monday morning.

The storm made landfall just east of Charleston around 8:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

All watches and warnings have been discontinued.

This is the second tropical system to form this year, developing just days before the official start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season on June 1.

As of 11 a.m. Monday, the center of Bonnie was located 45 miles east-northeast of Charleston and moving east-northeast at 2 mph.

The storm is expected to continue slowly moving northeastward along the Atlantic coast for the next several days.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 30 mph with higher gusts.  Little change in strength is expected.

As Bonnie moves closer, we’ll see scattered showers and thunderstorms across portions of Hampton Roads and Northeastern North Carolina Sunday and Monday.
