Low Pressure May Spoil Beach Weather

 

By Jack Fichter

STATE COLLEGE, Pa- Weak low pressure gathering over warm waters off the Carolinas will have the potential to instigate disruptive weather along a stretch of the Eastern Seaboard during the first part of the week.
The low will deepen somewhat as it tracks slowly northward along the North Carolina Outer Banks to the Virginia Capes through Tuesday. It should shift away from the coast midweek.
One aspect of this coastal low will be its potential to drop heavy or even excessive rain near the immediate coast between Cape Hatteras and Delaware Bay. Brisk easterly winds north of the low will aim rough surf towards beaches as far north as New Jersey . Tides will be elevated a little compared to normal.
Drenching rain overspreading the Carolina coastline will likely keep many beachgoers indoors on Labor Day. It cannot be ruled out that the storm delivering the rain takes on some tropical characteristics.
Gusty winds will also blow onto the beaches, mainly to the north and east of the developing storm’s center.
The winds will keep the danger of rip currents high and the surf rough from Long Island to North Carolina into Labor Day. The rip current threat will be elevated at other Southeast beaches.
AccuWeather.com meteorologists, including Joe Bastardi, are closely monitoring this storm for the possibility that it develops tropically. The storm could take on tropical characteristics by spending enough time over the warm waters off the Southeast coast.
The departure of the rain from most Carolina beaches will coincide with the end of the Labor Day holiday weekend. On Tuesday, the rain will wet places from south of New York City to Cape Hatteras.
