Newly developed Tropical Depression #3, about 265 miles east-southeast of Cape Fear NC, continues to become better organized. The tropical depression is expected to drift toward the NC coast this weekend, and will
likely meander just offshore through the first half of next week. The depression could become a Tropical Storm during Saturday.

Mainly maritime impacts are expected at this time including: rough surf, strong rip currents, and steep waves at inlet entrances. Otherwise, no direct impacts from the tropical disturbance are anticipated through Mon.

All interests, especially along the coast, should continue to monitor the progress of this system over the next several days.
