In the Tropics:
There is currently one tropical disturbance off the east coast of the US. It is forecast to move out to sea and will not be a threat to the local area.
A non-tropical low pressure system is expected to form off the east coast of the United States during the next day or so. The frontal low will move generally north-northeastward through the middle of the week, and the system will likely bring rain and wind impacts to portions of the mid-Atlantic and northeast U.S. coast. By the end of the week, the low could acquire some tropical or subtropical characteristics while it moves eastward away from the northeast U.S. coast. For more information on this system, including storm watches and warnings, see products issued by your local National Weather Service office and High Seas Forecasts issued by the Ocean Prediction Center. The formation chance over the next 5 days is 40%.
