Tropical Storm FAY

Tropical Storm Fay Special Discussion Number   4
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL062020
800 AM EDT Fri Jul 10 2020
Surface observations and radar data from the KDOX WSR-88D radar
indicate that there is now an area of 34-kt winds extending north
and northwest of the center of Fay. These winds will be approaching
the coast of Delaware and the southern Delaware Bay in the next few
hours, and as a result the Tropical Storm Warning has been extended
southward to Fenwick Island, Delaware and the southern Delaware Bay.
No changes were made to the previous track or intensity forecasts, 
however 34-kt wind radii were introduced in the northwest quadrant 
at the initial time and at the 12-h forecast. No other changes 
were made to the wind radii analyses or forecasts.

Note that this special advisory is being issued in lieu of the 800 
AM EDT (1200 UTC) intermediate advisory. 
Key Messages:
1. Fay is expected to produce 2 to 4 inches of rain with isolated
maxima of 7 inches along and near the track from the lower Maryland
Eastern Shore and Delaware northward into New Jersey, eastern
Pennsylvania, southeast New York, and southern New England. These
rains may result in flash flooding where the heaviest amounts occur.
Widespread river flooding is not expected at this time.
2. Tropical storm conditions are expected along portions of the
mid-Atlantic and northeast coast today and tonight, and a
Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the coasts of Delaware, New 
Jersey, New York and Connecticut, including Long Island.
