CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES:
There are no active tropical cyclones
An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance unit aircraft has recently been flying through the large non-tropical low pressure area located about 100 miles southeast of Morehead City, North Carolina.
While the low is producing a broad area of gale-force winds to the north and east of the center, the plane did not find a well-defined center, and the associated shower and thunderstorm activity has not become any better organized today.
This system could still become a short-lived subtropical storm through Sunday, but environmental conditions should become unfavorable for any further development on Monday.
The low is forecast to move slowly northwestward and approach eastern North Carolina tonight and early Sunday.
Regardless of development, intermittent periods of locally heavy rains and gusty winds will affect southeastern and eastern portions of North Carolina during the next day or two.
