For information specific to your area, including possible inland watches and warnings, please monitor products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office. DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 1100 AM EDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Bonnie was located near latitude 33.2 North, longitude 79.8 West. The depression is moving toward the north near 9 mph (15 km/h), and this general motion with a reduction in forward speed is expected today. A slow northeastward motion is expected tonight and Monday. On the forecast track, the center of Bonnie is expected to remain inland over northeastern South Carolina through Monday. Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Some slight weakening is forecast today, followed by little change in strength tonight and Monday. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1009 mb (29.80 inches). HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL: Bonnie is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 8 inches from east-central Georgia into central to eastern South Carolina, and 1 to 3 inches farther north across southeastern North Carolina. Heavy rain is expected to develop well north of Bonnie's main circulation into parts of the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast with total accumulations of 1 to 2 inches through Monday and isolated maximum amounts of 4 inches. WIND: Wind gusts to near tropical storm force are possible along the south-central coast of South Carolina today. SURF: Bonnie is expected to produce dangerous surf and rip current conditions along portions of the southeastern United States coast through the weekend. Please consult products from your local weather office. NEXT ADVISORY ------------- Next complete advisory at 500 PM EDT. $$ Forecaster Brown ]]>

  • Tropical Depression BONNIE Forecast Discussion Number 8
    Issued at 1100 AM EDT SUN MAY 29 2016 000 WTNT42 KNHC 291444 TCDAT2 TROPICAL DEPRESSION BONNIE DISCUSSION NUMBER 8 NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL022016 1100 AM EDT SUN MAY 29 2016 Most of the deep convection associated with the tropical cyclone became separated from the center overnight, and Bonnie weakened to a tropical depression before reaching the south-central coast of South Carolina. Aircraft data indicate that Bonnie made landfall just east of Charleston near the Isle of Palms around 1230 UTC. The tropical cyclone has continued to move faster than expected, with an initial motion estimate of 360/8 kt. The global models insist that a reduction in forward speed will occur today while the cyclone moves around the northwestern portion of a low- to mid-level ridge over the western Atlantic. As a result of the faster forward motion, the NHC forecast track has been adjusted northward accordingly, and now shows the center moving farther inland during the next day or so. After 48 hours, a slightly faster northeastward motion is expected to begin. The updated NHC track is close to the GFS/ECMWF consensus. Bonnie is forecast to weaken some during the next 12 to 24 hours, but little change in strength is expected after that time since a portion of the circulation could be over water. A track farther inland than anticipated would result in a faster rate of weakening, and Bonnie would become a remnant low sooner in this scenario. The primary impact from Bonnie will continue to be locally heavy rainfall, which is occurring over much of eastern Georgia, and portions of the Carolinas. These rains will gradually spread northeastward over the Mid-Atlantic region during the next couple of days.
