 As of 7:52 AM, Michael Caropolo of NOAA, has announced that the Hurricane center has canceled the tropical storm watch for Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties.  The center of the low pressure system is located just off the Cape Fear coast and will continue to move away from the region today and intensify. The system is still forecast to become a tropical storm but not until in reaches the Outer Banks.
As the low pulls away today we can still expect some gusty winds on the backside from the N and NW of 20-25 mph this morning.
In addition, rainfall amounts have been revised downward, we can expect to receive about 1/2 inch of rain or less throughout the morning. With most areas receiving less than .2 inches. The flash flood watch was canceled earlier this morning as well.
