We have TD 1 per the NHC with Tropical Storm watches for Monday along the North Carolina coast.


At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression One
was located near latitude 28.4 North, longitude 78.6 West. The
depression is moving toward the north-northeast near 13 mph (20
km/h) and this motion should continue during the next day or so.
After that time, a faster northeastward motion is expected. On
the forecast track, the depression is expected to move offshore,
but parallel to, the coast of Florida tonight, and then move near
or east of the coast of North Carolina on Monday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
Gradual strengthening is forecast, and the depression is expected
to become a tropical storm on Sunday.

The estimated minimum central pressure based on surface observations
and earlier aircraft reconnaissance data is 1008 mb (29.77 inches)
