In the Tropics:
Disorganized showers and thunderstorms off the coast of the
southeastern United States are associated with a front and trough
of low pressure. A non-tropical area of low pressure is expected
to form along the frontal boundary within the next day or so. The
system appears unlikely to become a subtropical or tropical cyclone
since it is forecast to remain frontal while moving generally
northward and inland over the Carolinas this weekend.
Regardless, the system is likely to produce gusty winds and
dangerous surf and rip current conditions along portions of the
southeastern United States late this week and into the weekend.
Heavy rainfall is expected in portions of the Carolinas with
hazardous marine conditions expected over the coastal and
offshore waters where gale warnings are in effect. For more
