Atlantic Tropical Weather Outlook

ABNT20 KNHC 041455

1055 AM EDT TUE AUG 4 2015

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Special tropical weather outlook issued to update the discussion on
the low pressure area near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Satellite imagery and radar data indicate that thunderstorm
activity has increased since yesterday in association with the low
pressure area centered near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  In
addition, surface observations indicate that the circulation has
become better defined, with winds near 35 mph over water to the
east and south of the center.  While upper-level winds are at best
marginally conducive, there is some potential for a tropical
cyclone to form later today or tonight as the low moves
northeastward along the coasts of South and North Carolina.  After
tonight, the low is expected to move into the open Atlantic Ocean
and merge with a frontal system.  Regardless of development, locally
heavy rains and gusty winds will spread along the coastal areas of
South and North Carolina today and tonight.  For additional
information on this system, see High Seas Forecasts and local
forecast office products issued by the National Weather Service.
An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to
investigate this system this afternoon.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent
