DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
At 1100 AM EDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Fay was
located by an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft near
latitude 38.4 North, longitude 74.5 West. Fay is moving toward the
north near 12 mph (19 km/h). A northward to north-northeastward
motion at a faster forward speed is expected over the next couple of
days. On the forecast track, the center of Fay is forecast to move
near the mid-Atlantic coast this afternoon and evening and move
inland over the mid-Atlantic and northeast United States tonight and
Data from the aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds are
near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength
is forecast today while the center remains over water. Weakening
should begin after the center moves inland, and Fay is expected to
weaken to a tropical depression by early Saturday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km)
from the center. A Weatherflow station at Lewes, Delaware, recently
reported a sustained wind of 40 mph (65 km/h) and a wind gust of
50 mph (80 km/h). A National Ocean Service observing site at Lewes
recently reported a sustained wind of 40 mph (64 km/h) and a wind
gust of 49 mph (79 km/h).
The estimated minimum central pressure based on data from the
aircraft is 999 mb (29.50 inches).
