(6/28) Tropical Update: invest 91L off SE Coast

Saturday (6/28) 10am Tropical Update
An area of low pressure (officially invest 91L) has developed off the GA/SC coast along the cold front that crossed our area Friday morning.  This time of year, washed out cold fronts/stalled fronts are usually the features to watch for tropical development across the Gulf or off the SE coast.

It's in an area of very warm Gulf Stream waters which could lead to some slow development over the next few days.

The National Hurricane Center is currently  giving it a 30% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours.

The latest tropical models have this system drifting south a bit before getting picked up and carried northeast as our next front advances into the area next week.  Regardless of development, showery conditions with gusty winds will be possible across coastal areas through the weekend and into next week.
