Category 2 Hurricane Maria Could Hit US East Coast

Category 2 Hurricane Maria Could Hit US East Coast”

The tropics still remain rather busy with post tropical cyclone Jose still spinning off the New England Coast, Tropical Depression Lee getting resurrected in the open Atlantic, and Major Hurricane Maria churning in the open Atlantic.

Maximum sustained winds were 115 miles per hour, and a brief period of strengthening is expected.

Through the weekend, Maria's impacts to the East Coast will be limited with the NHC's stating that "dangerous surf and rip currents (are) expected at southeastern United States beaches for the next several days".

This is something to keep an eye on if you have travel plans to eastern North Carolina or southeastern Virginia or the Delmarva in the early to middle part of next week.

As of 11 a.m. on Sunday morning, Maria was located 475 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras and was moving north at 9 mph with maximum sustained winds of 105 mph. There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect because of Lee.

MARIA SURF/SWELL POTENTIAL: Swells generated by Maria are affecting Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the northern coast of Hispaniola, the Turks and Caicos Islands and the Bahamas.

While the cone of uncertainty presently interacts with the northern part of the North Carolina coast as well as the Virginia and Maryland coasts, the storm poses no direct threat to SC, though it is already producing coastal effects that are being felt throughout the area, including a high rip current risk, large waves, choppy surf and higher tides.

Lee is not a threat to land, but may strengthen a little through the week.

Maria slammed into Puerto Rico on Wednesday, leaving widespread destruction in its wake. The average temperature in the next 10 days is expected to be 79 degrees.

That's after the storm destroyed the island of Dominica, killing at least 15 people there.
