For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Southwestern Atlantic:
A frontal boundary and trough of low pressure are producing a large
area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms off the coast of the
southeastern United States. A non-tropical area of low pressure is
expected to form along the frontal boundary by tonight. 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 late Saturday or Sunday.

Regardless of subtropical development, the system is likely to
produce gusty winds, dangerous surf, and rip current conditions
along portions of the southeastern United States through the
weekend. Heavy rainfall is expected in portions of the Carolinas and
Virginia during the next few days. Hazardous marine conditions are
also expected over the coastal and offshore waters where gale and
storm warnings are in effect. For more information, see products
from your local National Weather Service office and high seas
forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days…low…10 percent.
