Tropical Depression 8

Post by Caribbean Traveler » Sun Aug 28, 2016 11:36 am

Sunday Afternoon Update

Tropical Depression 8 forms

The Weather Situation
An upper air low well east of North Carolina the past few days and has gained tropical characteristics. A well defined low center is now being exposed by easterly wind shear. It is possible that this system was a minimal tropical storm earlier this morning.

Current Tropical Weather
As of 11 AM AST Tropical Depression 8 was centered at 31.5 N / 70.0 W or 405 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. It was moving west at 9 mph. Top sustained winds are estimated at 35 mph. Pressure was estimated at 1009 mb.

Tropical Weather Forecast:
Forecasts take TD 8 west toward the coast of NC. It will be about 100 miles east of Morehead City by Tuesday morning. Continued wind shear should inhibit strengthening, but tropical storm strength is probable.

Monday Afternoon Update

Tropical Depression 8 still sheared

The Weather Situation
A strong low pressure center aloft SW of tropical depression 8 coupled with high pressure to the north has created shearing winds. Nearly all convection was stripped away Sunday. Some convection has rebuilt today on the northwestern side of the circulation. A few rain squalls may affect the Outer Banks over the next 24 hours.

Current Tropical Weather
As of 11 AM AST Tropical Depression 8 was centered at 33.2 N / 73.5 W or 180 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. It was moving NW at 7 mph. Top sustained winds are estimated at 35 mph. Pressure was estimated at 1011 mb.

Tropical Weather Forecast:
Tropical Depression 8 is recurving and should be just east of Cape Hatteras tomorrow afternoon. Minimal impacts are expected to eastern North Carolina. TD 8 may strengthen into a minimal tropical storm during the next 24 hours.
