DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 1100 PM EDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Two was
located near latitude 29.0 North, longitude 75.9 West. The
depression is moving toward the west-northwest near 12 mph (19
km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through
Saturday. A decrease in forward speed and a turn toward the
northwest and then toward the north are expected on Saturday night
and Sunday as the system nears the coast in the warning area.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some strengthening is forecast during the next 24 hours, and the
depression is forecast to become a tropical storm overnight or on
Saturday.

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 by Saturday night or early Sunday,
making outside preparations difficult.

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 expected within the tropical storm warning area.
