DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 AM EDT (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression 
Claudette was located near latitude 35.1 North, longitude 79.1 West. 
The depression is moving toward the east-northeast near 20 mph (31 
km/h).  An east-northeastward to northeastward motion with some 
increase in forward speed is expected over the next couple of days. 
On the forecast track, the system should move over the coast of 
North Carolina this morning, cross into the western Atlantic Ocean 
later today, and pass near or just south of Nova Scotia on Tuesday.
 
Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. 
Some strengthening is expected today, and Claudette is forecast to 
become a tropical storm again this morning over eastern North 
Carolina.  Some additional strengthening is possible over the 
western Atlantic Ocean through early Tuesday.  Claudette is expected 
to become a post-tropical cyclone Tuesday afternoon or Tuesday 
night.
 
The estimated minimum central pressure based on surface
observations is 1008 mb (29.77 inches).
 
 
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for Claudette can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT3, WMO header WTNT43 KNHC,
and on the web at
www.hurricanes.gov/graphics_at3.shtml?key_messages.
 
RAINFALL:  Through this morning, Claudette is expected to produce 
additional rainfall totals of 1 to 3 inches with isolated maximum 
totals of 5 inches across portions of southeastern Georgia, central 
and coastal South Carolina, and south-central to eastern North 
Carolina.  Flash, urban and small stream flooding impacts, as well

Claudette, see the companion storm summary at WBCSCCNS3 with the
WMO header ACUS43 KWBC or at the following link:
https://www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/discussions/nfdscc3.html
 
STORM SURGE:  The combination of storm surge and the tide will
cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising
waters moving inland from the shoreline.  The water could reach the
following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if
the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...
 
NC/VA Border to Cape Lookout, NC...1-3 ft
Cape Lookout, NC to Little River Inlet, SC...1-2 ft
 
Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge
and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances.  For
information specific to your area, please see products issued by
your local National Weather Service forecast office.
 
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected to begin in the 
warning area this morning.  Tropical storm conditions are possible 
in the watch area today.
 
TORNADOES:  A couple of tornadoes are possible through this morning 
across parts of the coastal Carolinas.
