Thursday October 17 2019
The wind machine in place today is from record Low Pressure in New England. That’s the storm that brought us rain yesterday and pulling in gusts to 50 mph today. The next system is forming in the southwest Gulf of Mexico and just identified as Potential Tropical Cyclone 16 from the National Hurricane Center. It is likely to get a name by tonight as it continues to organize.
The wind flow streamlines have been overlaid on this image. The circulation is in the lower left corner…
Further development is expected. Winds are currently 35 mph, but within a day it should bump over 40 mph and get named Nestor. Warnings are already up for parts of coastal Louisiana to Florida. The forecast track takes it into North Carolina by Sunday morning.

European Model Forecast —> slider
The Low Pressure will track inland this weekend and pass off of the North Carolina/Virginia coast Sunday. This will be close enough to brig some rain into Maryland and tropical storm winds especially south of the Bay Bridge.
Forecast Animation GFS Model
While I think the model is not giving the potential rain on Sunday justice, there will be another rain event to follow on Tuesday
Wind Forecast Ocer 40 mph
The best chance locally for this to occur will be Sunday morning and in southern Maryland and the southern half of Delmarva
National Hurricane Center Forecasts
It’s likely that this will be hybrid storm and post tropical cyclone when it reaches the Mid Atlantic Sunday.
Note: The thing to watch is is there will be a north bump of verification compared to the modeling. We have seen that with prior systems.
I will have another update tonight.
