TROPICAL UPDATE —
7:00 PM Local Time Sun Aug 2
Location: 28.2°N 79.7°W
Moving: NNW at 9 mph
Min pressure: 993 mb
Max sustained: 70 mph
Radar shows most of the heavier rain in the northeast front quadrant of the storm as it slowly craws Florida’s eastern shore with winds sustained at just 4 mph below category one hurricane strength.
Very little if any strengthening is expected over the next 24 hours which is good news, however, the slow movement and staying just off shore will continue to cause high wave action and wind damage all along the east coast. The latest track of the storm has not changed much as it is looking like a landfall very close to Wilmington North Carolina or right along the South Carolina/North Carolina border as early as Monday night.
