The remnants of Delta will continue to bring banding areas of showers with some isolated areas of embedded thunderstorms across the entire southeast region of the country into the overnight hours. However, no significant initiatives are expected as a result. Some tactical reroutes and occasional holding may be encountered.
Impact to the National Airspace System (NAS) has been minimal overall, but operators should still check NOTAMs for local airport, airspace and equipment issues. NBAA Air Traffic Services also encourages operators to check with FBOs for services available and potential local impacts off airport.
Update from the National Hurricane Center
According to the National Hurricane Center’s Advisory #25, issued at 2100z:
At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Delta was located near latitude 33.7 North, longitude 90.0 West. The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the northeast near 12 mph (19 km/h) and this motion is expected to become more east-northeasterly on Sunday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts. Weakening is forecast during the next 36 hours, and Delta’s surface low is expected to dissipate across West Virginia late Sunday night.
