TROPICAL STORM WATCH COASTAL NORTH CAROLINA
TROPICAL DEPRESSION 8 MOVING NORTHWEST
The latest reports from an Air Force plane show the depression rather weak and you can see on the loop above the center of the circulation. However we have noticed some thunderstorms are beginning to flare up in and around the center again so this will need to be watched this afternoon. Conditions are becoming more favorable as the depression gets closer to the coast. We have a moist tropical environment and warm water temperatures with less wind shear. Tropical Storm Watch is posted for the coast of North Carolina.

Interests elsewhere along the Outer Banks of North Carolina should monitor the progress of the depression. Additional watches or warnings may be required later today. For storm information specific to your area, including possible inland watches and warnings, please monitor products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office. DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 800 AM EDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Eight was located near latitude 32.9 North, longitude 73.2 West. The depression is moving toward the northwest near 9 mph (15 km/h). This general motion with a slower forward speed is expected later today, with a turn toward the north forecast on Tuesday or Tuesday night. On the forecast track, the center of the depression will be near the Outer Banks of North Carolina late Tuesday. Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Slow strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and the depression is expected to become a tropical storm by tonight. The minimum central pressure reported by the Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter is 1011 mb (29.86 inches).
There has been no real change in any of the forecasts over the next few days. The depression is forecast to strengthen into a tropical storm and then hook to the right. With a weather front dropping down from the north and upper air winds turning westerly across the Middle Atlantic and Northeast, this makes total senses.
Tropical Depression 9 is in the Gulf of Mexico and this could become a tropical storm later today or tonight. Here is the latest information on Tropical Depression 9.
