Storm Summary and Projection:
Hurricane Summary POSTED: August 4, 2015 5:11 p.m. Watching Low Pressure Along the North Carolina Coast The Atlantic remains devoid of any named tropical systems at this time. However, an area of low pressure along the North Carolina coast is causing gale force winds off the southeast North Carolina coast. This low pressure area is located along the coast near Wilmington North Carolina. This feature will continue to track to the northeast around 10 mph. There has been considerable thunderstorm activity with this system over the past 12-18 hours. Interaction with nearby land and rather strong vertical wind shear continue to limit organization. Some model output suggests the vertical wind shear over the system might diminish for a few hours through the first part of tonight. So, we will be closely watching the progress of this low as it tracks northeastward along the North Carolina coast. Regardless of any development, the low pressure area will bring heavy rain and gusty winds along the coast of North Carolina, especially over the Outer Banks through tonight. The system will start to move away from the North Carolina coast Wednesday morning. As the low moves further north it will encounter even stronger vertical wind shear late tonight and tomorrow just as it starts to merge with a weak frontal boundary. Elsewhere across the Atlantic Basin, no development is expected through the rest of the week and through the upcoming weekend. By AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dan Kottlowski
