Maximum sustained winds remain near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Some slight strengthening is possible, and the depression could become a tropical storm before it reaches the coast. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1009 mb (29.80 inches). An Air Force Hurricane Hunter plane will investigate the depression this morning. HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the coast within the warning area later tonight or early Sunday. RAINFALL: The depression is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 1 to 3 inches from eastern South Carolina through southeastern North Carolina. STORM SURGE: Storm surge inundation of 1 to 2 feet above ground level is possible within the tropical storm warning area. SURF: This system is expected to produce life-threatening surf and rip current conditions along portions of the southeastern United States coast through the weekend.

  • Tropical Depression TWO Forecast Discussion Number 3
    Issued at 500 AM EDT SAT MAY 28 2016 000 WTNT42 KNHC 280836 TCDAT2 TROPICAL DEPRESSION TWO DISCUSSION NUMBER 3 NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL022016 500 AM EDT SAT MAY 28 2016 The depression has not become any better organized since yesterday. The convection is located to the northwest of the low-level center due to southeasterly shear, and it is also limited due to the fact that the cyclone has been moving over cooler waters. Dvorak T-numbers have not changed, and the initial intensity is kept at 30 kt based on continuity. The depression has a small opportunity to strengthen a little during the next 24 hours while it moves over the warmer waters of the Gulf Stream, although the shear is not favorable for intensification. This is consistent with most of the intensity guidance, which do not show any notable increase of the winds. In between 24 and 36 hours, the circulation will be interacting with land, and weakening should begin. By 72 hours or sooner, the depression is forecast to become a remnant low. Although the low-level center is difficult to locate on satellite imagery, the best estimate of the initial motion is 310 degrees at 12 kt. The depression is currently located on the southwestern edge of a mid-level ridge, and this pattern will continue to steer the cyclone on the same track for the next 24 to 36 hours. Thereafter, a short wave trough is forecast to approach from the west and force the cyclone to turn to the east-northeast at a very slow pace. The NHC forecast is an extrapolation of the previous one, and it follows the trend of the GFS and the ECMWF models very closely. The NHC forecast brings the center of the cyclone near the South Carolina coast between 24 and 36 hours.
