Special Weather Statement September 25-30, 2008

This special weather statement is being provided by our analysis group as supplied by the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, Thursday morning, September 25, 2008. Anyone with interests along the East Coast please note:
A WELL-DEFINED SURFACE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM CENTERED ABOUT 225 MILES SOUTHEAST OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA-NORTH CAROLINA BORDER IS MOVING SLOWLY WESTWARD. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS HAVE BECOME A LITTLE BETTER ORGANIZED THIS MORNING AND THIS SYSTEM COULD DEVELOP INTO A SUBTROPICAL OR TROPICAL CYCLONE LATER TODAY. REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT THIS SYSTEM BECOMES A SUBTROPICAL OR TROPICAL CYCLONE... STRONG WINDS...COASTAL FLOODING...HIGH SURF...AND DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS WILL CONTINUE ALONG PORTIONS OF THE U.S. EAST COAST DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. OUTER RAINBANDS ARE ALREADY SPREADING ONSHORE THE SOUTHEASTERN COAST OF NORTH CAROLINA...AND BUOY AND SHIP REPORTS INDICATE WINDS IN EXCESS OF 50 MPH ARE OCCURRING NORTH AND WEST OF THE CENTER. INTERESTS ALONG THE U.S. EAST COAST FROM THE CAROLINAS NORTHWARD TO MID-ATLANTIC REGION SHOULD CLOSELY MONITOR STATEMENTS FROM THEIR LOCAL NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECAST OFFICES...AND ALSO HIGH SEAS FORECASTS ISSUED BY THE OCEAN PREDICTION CENTER IN WASHINGTON D.C. FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND WARNINGS.


We would only add that this system could rapidly develop into a Tropical or Subtropical storm at any time. It is drawing energy from the warm Gulf Stream waters and is gathering core strength. We are also watching another low pressure area near Hispaniola that also has high potential for development with East Coast USA involvement in several days.
