The remnants of Hurricane Sally continue to creep toward the coastal Carolina and Southern Virginia areas. It is bringing a considerable amount of rain, with flooding to be expected.
The National Hurricane Center issued their final discussion at 09z this morning.
However, the National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Prediction Center (WPC) page will still update impacts of the remnants of Sally.
At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Sally
was located near latitude 34.1 North, longitude 81.0 West. The
post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the east-northeast near 24
mph (39 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue with a slow
increase in forward speed.
Maximum sustained winds are near 15 mph (30 km/h) with higher gusts.
Increased change in strength is forecast during the next 48
hours as the system moves back over the open Atlantic after 24
hours, and starts to restrengthen as a non-tropical/extratropical
cyclone. Please refer to Ocean Prediction Center’s North Atlantic
High Seas Forecast (Header: FZNT01 KWBC or HSFAT1).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1004 mb (29.65 inches).
Flash flood warnings are in effect for upstate South Carolina, most of North Carolina and southeast Virginia.
A tornado watch is posted across portions of eastern South Carolina and southeastern North Carolina.
