CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES:
There are no active tropical cyclones
A low pressure area located about 100 miles off the coast of South Carolina is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms well to the east of its center of circulation.
Strong upper-level winds should prevent any significant tropical or subtropical development during the next few days. By late this weekend, the low is expected to interact with a frontal boundary located to its north, which should end the opportunity for tropical or subtropical formation.
Regardless of development, the low is forecast to move slowly east-northeastward at about 5 mph, and it could bring gusty winds and locally heavy rain to eastern portions of the Carolina’s through the weekend.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent
