We just got the TS warning a few minutes ago. I'm not really expecting a ton from this other than tomorrow being a really rainy day.

Mon 3Aug 2pEDT/AST:
Winds 70mph(110km/h)
Moving N 13mph(20km/h)
Pressure 993mb

Radar shows storm reforming its center / eye like radar appearance this afternoon once again by trying to wrap rain all the way around center. And aircraft recon has the pressure dropping again = trying to restrengthen. Scattered showers, some with gusty winds, expanding across SC, NC & VA. A few power outages from it here and there, but hopefully quickly restored before main show arrives later. This on/off wear and tear adds up over time in tropical systems creating more widespread issues in the end. Tornado chances will continue to rise, especially North and East of the center (NE corner).

There’s that “eye” on radar just SE of Charleston. Storm may have jogged a little Northeast too.

I like Ed, good stuff. We should bring up that twitter thread again to share some good Mets out there.

Seeing reports of 35-45mph wind gusts at the coast

NHC still says will be a Cat 1 at or near landfall

This highlights the current areas most likely where tornadoes may occur and a Tornado Watch is likely forthcoming, the threat will shift further up the coast in time:

Loop according to the HiRes NAM model showing Sustained Winds. Tuesday August 4, 2020 11am-9pm.
Dark Blue = 23mph+. Yellows = 34mph+

Note the CT coast with the 30mph+ sustained winds. Strongest always stays off shore as usual.
