For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to discuss the area of low
pressure near the northeast Florida coast.
1. An elongated area of low pressure located near the northeast Florida
coast and an associated upper-level disturbance are producing a
large area of showers and thunderstorms extending from portions of
Florida and coastal Georgia eastward for a few hundred miles over
the Atlantic waters. Some development of this system is possible
through early Wednesday if it remains offshore while moving slowly
northward near the northeastern Florida and Georgia coasts. The low
is expected to move well inland over the southeast U.S. by late
Wednesday, which should end any chance of tropical cyclone
Regardless of development, heavy rainfall could cause flash
flooding over portions of coastal sections of northeastern Florida
and Georgia through tonight, and over portions of the Carolinas on
Wednesday. Gusty winds could also produce rough marine conditions
and life-threatening surf and rip currents along the coasts of
northeastern Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas through Wednesday.
For additional information, see products from your local National
Weather Service office. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook
on this system will be issued by 3 AM EDT Wednesday, or earlier if
Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.
