Steven Pfaff, Warning Coordination Meteorologist with the National Weather Service released the latest update for the potential tropical development and heavy rainfall.
The following are the points in the update from Pfaff.
- A subtle change in the evolution of this low-pressure system will keep the bulk of the rainfall just offshore this part of the Carolinas and forecast rainfall totals have been lowered as a result.
- Per NHC the risk of tropical or subtropical development has increased to 70% as the low tracks towards the Outer Banks and coastal mid-Atlantic states through the next couple day
- Other than a moderate risk of rip currents all area beaches through the end of the week, this system is not expected to produce any other significant hazards across southeast NC or northeast SC
