Post-tropical cyclone Bonnie is still producing rain along the East Coast. The center is located about 70 miles south of Wilmington, NC and 80 miles ESE of Myrtle Beach, SC. It is still moving very slowly, now ENE at just 4 mph. The remnants of Bonnie will continue moving along the NC coastline over the next few days, before moving off into the Atlantic later this week.
