DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 500 AM EDT (0900 UTC), the disturbance was centered near latitude
30.3 North, longitude 81.0 West.  The system is stationary, and a
slow and erratic motion is forecast through this afternoon, followed
by a faster northeastward motion tonight and Tuesday.  On the
forecast track, the system will move near the Georgia and South
Carolina coasts today and move along the North Carolina coast
tonight and Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and the
system is expected to become a tropical storm by Tuesday morning.
The cyclone is forecast to become post-tropical by Tuesday night.

Satellite and radar data indicate that the associated showers and
thunderstorms show some signs of organization, but the center of
circulation is not yet well defined.  Only a slight increase in the
definition of the circulation would lead to the formation of a
tropical cyclone.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb (29.74 inches).

RAINFALL:  The system is expected to produce total rain

Carolina, and southeast Virginia coasts, with possible isolated
maximum amounts of 9 inches.  The heavier rains may result in some
flooding concerns along coastal areas.

SURF:  Swells generated by this disturbance will affect portions of
the Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina coasts during the
