  4. It’s official according to Governor Wolf southeastern Pennsylvania basically Philadelphia surrounding suburbs will be going code yellow on June 5 and there’s 17 counties ( Western Pennsylvania )going code green starting Next week
  5. I’m hearing that tomorrow Governor Wolf will be announcing that some counties specifically Western part of the state will be going from yellow to green and then some counties in the eastern part of the state will be going from red to yellow Phase

Thedepression is moving toward the north-northeast near 13 mph (20km/h) and this motion should continue during the next day or so. After that time, a faster northeastward motion is expected. On the forecast track, the depression is expected to move offshore, but parallel to, the coast of Florida tonight, and then move near or east of the coast of North Carolina on Monday.Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.Gradual strengthening is forecast, and the depression is expected to become a tropical storm on Sunday.The estimated minimum central pressure based on surface observations and earlier aircraft reconnaissance data is 1008 mb (29.77 inches).HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND----------------------WIND: Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watcharea by on Monday.RAINFALL: The depression is expected to produce additional rainaccumulations of 1 to 2 inches over the central and northwestBahamas, and generally less than 1 inch over south Florida throughtonight. The depression is also expected to produce total rainaccumulations of 1 to 2 inches over coastal North Carolina Sundaynight and Monday.SURF: Swells generated by the depression are affecting portions ofthe east coast of central and northern Florida. These swells areexpected to spread northward during the next few days, and couldcause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions across muchof the U.S. southeast and mid-Atlantic coasts. Please consultproducts from your local weather office.NEXT ADVISORY-------------Next intermediate advisory at 800 PM EDT.Next complete advisory at 1100 PM EDT.$$Forecaster CangialosiTropical Depression One Discussion Number 1NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL012020500 PM EDT Sat May 16 2020Satellite images, Doppler radar data, and surface observationsindicate that the low pressure system located just east of the coastof central Florida has developed sufficient organization to now beclassified as a tropical depression. The low-level center is welldefined and deep convection has persisted near the center and inbands on the east side of the circulation for the past severalhours. The cyclone is considered tropical instead of subtropicalbecause it has central deep convection and a relatively small radiusof maximum wind. The initial intensity is estimated to be 30 ktbased on data collected earlier today by the Air Force HurricaneHunters. Another aircraft is scheduled to investigate the systemthis evening.Based on satellite data and the earlier reconnaissance fixes, theinitial motion of the system is north-northeastward at 11 kt. Acontinued north-northeastward motion at about the same forward speedis expected during the next 24 hours or so, keeping the cycloneoffshore, but parallel to, the east coast of Florida. After that time,the model solutions begin to diverge and the details of the trackforecast become more complicated. The important features for thefuture track of the depression appear to be a pair of mid- toupper-level troughs currently over the central U.S. The specificamplitude, timing, and location of those troughs will ultimatelyresult in how close to the coast of North Carolina this system gets.The GFS and HWRF models are on the left side of the guidance andbring the system inland or along the coast, while the ECMWF andUKMET models show an offshore track. The NHC track forecast splitsthe difference of these solutions, and lies close to the variousconsensus models, which usually perform best. It should be notedthat forecast uncertainty is typically larger for weak systems likethis one.The system should gradually strengthen during the next couple ofdays as it remains over the Gulf Stream current and in relativelylow wind shear conditions. However, the surrounding air mass is notparticularly moist, so that and the marginally warm SSTs shouldlimit significant intensification. The NHC intensity forecast callsfor the system to become a tropical storm tonight or on Sunday withcontinued slow strengthening as it nears the North Carolina coast.Extratropical transition should occur in about 3 days, or sooner.The NHC intensity forecast generally lies roughly near the middle ofthe guidance envelope.Key Messages:1. A tropical storm watch has been issued for a portion of theNorth Carolina coast. Tropical-storm-force winds and heavy rainsare possible there on Monday.2. Dangerous coastal surf conditions and rip currents are expected to spread northward from Florida to the mid-Atlantic states during the next few days.

  9. John Kassell @JPKassell Confidence continues to increase in the potential for tropical cyclone genesis north of the Bahamas into the weekend. EPS signaling high-end probabilities of development thru Day 5.

  11. From what I’ve been reading it could be an active tropical season
  12. What a beautiful day for a flyover thank you Thunderbirds and Blue Angels
