DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 1100 AM EDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Bonnie was located near latitude 35.1 North, longitude 75.1 West. The depression is moving toward the northeast near 7 mph (11 km/h). A turn toward the east-northeast and an increase in forward speed are expected later today. On the forecast track, the center of Bonnie should move away from the coast of North Carolina this afternoon and tonight. Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts. Some slight strengthening is possible during the next 24 hours. After that time, Bonnie is expected to again become a post-tropical low. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1009 mb (29.80 inches). Bonnie will gradually get kicked away to the east northeast over the next 2 days as the westerly winds in the jet stream carry the system out to sea.
