The National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami, Florida is monitoring an area of disturbed weather currently over Georgia for possible cyclone development along the U.S. east coast. In today’s Tropical Outlook report issued by the NHC, the forecasters have identified this as the only area of concern in the entire Atlantic hurricane basin for the next five days.
According to the NHC, a broad trough of low pressure located over southeast Georgia is expected to move off of the southeastern United States coastline later this evening. Environmental conditions are forecast to be marginally conducive for some gradual development over the weekend and into early next week while the system drifts slowly offshore of the southeastern United States. For now, the NHC says there’s only a 10% chance of development over the next 48 hours, but those odds grow to 30% over the next five days.
