1. A broad Area of Low Pressure

A broad area of low pressure located about 260 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, continues to produce showers and thunderstorms on its north side. Satellite and surface data indicate that the circulation of the low is elongated and not well organized. However, this system could still become a tropical depression later today while it moves northwestward. By tonight and Wednesday, additional development appears unlikely, due to strong upper-level winds, while the system moves northward and north-northeastward near the southeastern United States coast.

Regardless of tropical cyclone formation, this system is likely to bring scattered showers and thunderstorms across portions of northeastern South Carolina and eastern North Carolina later today and tonight. In addition, dangerous surf conditions and rip currents are expected along portions of the North Carolina coast today.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours, medium, 50 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days, medium, 50 percent.
  • 2. The remnants of Kirk

    The remnants of Kirk are located about 950 miles east of the Windward Islands and are moving quickly westward at around 25 mph. This system continues to produce a large area of showers and thunderstorms, along with winds to near gale force in gusts on its north side. However, satellite data indicate that the system still lacks a closed circulation.

    This disturbance could redevelop into a tropical cyclone during the next day or two before it moves into an area of highly unfavorable upper-level winds while it approaches the Caribbean Sea. Interests in the Windward and Leeward Islands should monitor the progress of this disturbance as gusty winds and locally heavy rains are likely over the next couple of days even if the system does not redevelop into a tropical cyclone.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours, medium, 60 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days, medium, 60 percent.
