Storm Summary and Projection:
Hurricane Summary POSTED: August 4, 2015 1:09 p.m. Watching Low off the Carolina Coast The Atlantic remains devoid of any named tropical systems at this time, but we are watching a couple of systems. We continue to monitor an area of low pressure located along the coast near the border of South Carolina and North Carolina. This low center continues to track to the northeast around 10 mph. There has been considerable thunderstorm activity with this systems over the past 12-18 hours. Interaction with nearby land and rather strong vertical wind shear are negative factors in allowing this to develop into a tropical cyclone. Nevertheless, we will be watching very closely as this low continues to progress northeastward. Regardless of any development, the low will bring heavy rain and gusty winds along the coast of North Carolina today into tonight. By Wednesday, the system will move out into the open Atlantic. Another area of concern might evolve later in the week. A strong tropical wave is forecast to move off the coast of Africa later today over an area of relatively low shear and warm water. However, dry stable air remains in place over this area, and this dry, stable air will be a deterrent to consistent thunderstorm development. If this tropical wave can develop sustained thunderstorms, it could slowly evolve into an organized tropical system late in the week or over the upcoming weekend. Elsewhere across the Atlantic Basin, no development is expected over the next several days. By AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brian Wimer
