Tropical Weather Outlook

800 AM EDT Wed Jul 8 2020
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
1. An elongated area of low pressure is located along the coast of
northeastern South Carolina. This system is producing a large area
of disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the adjacent Atlantic
waters. The low is expected to move northeastward near or just
offshore of the North Carolina Outer Banks on Thursday, and then
turn north-northeastward and move along the mid-Atlantic coast
Friday. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for
development, and a tropical or subtropical cyclone is likely to form
within the next couple of days. Regardless of development, the low
is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall that could cause
some flash flooding across portions of eastern North Carolina, the
coastal mid-Atlantic, and southern New England during the next few
days. Gusty winds are also possible in the North Carolina Outer
Banks through Thursday.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.
