Low chance of tropical development off the SE US coast

On Tuesday morning, the National Hurricane Center is monitoring a trough of low pressure, producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms across the eastern Gulf of Mexico. This system is expected to bring substantial rain to the state of Florida over the next few days; after that, it’ll move into the Atlantic Ocean and meet a cold front. There is a low chance of sown tropical development off the SE United States; the good news is it’ll be moving away from North Carolina as a front will push it away. Regardless of development, there is a risk of some increased surf and rip currents along the NC coast later this week and over the weekend. It should not directly impact North Carolina now; if anything changes, I’ll let you know. The National Hurricane Center gives it a 20% chance of becoming a Tropical Depression over the next 7 days. We have a long season to go, and it’ll be here every step of the way.
