DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 800 AM EDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Two was
estimated by an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft to be near
latitude 30.0 North, longitude 78.0 West. The depression is moving
toward the northwest near 14 mph (22 km/h). A decrease in forward
speed is expected later today and on Sunday as the system nears the
coast within the warning area.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
Reports from the reconnaissance aircraft indicate that the tropical
cyclone is just below tropical storm strength. The depression is
forecast to become a tropical storm later today as it moves over the
warm waters of the Gulfstream.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1009 mb (29.80 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the
coast within the warning area later tonight or early Sunday.

RAINFALL: The depression is expected to produce total rainfall
accumulations of 1 to 3 inches from eastern South Carolina through
southeastern North Carolina.

STORM SURGE: Storm surge inundation of 1 to 2 feet above ground
level is possible within the tropical storm warning area.
