Well, well, well...only a few days before the official start of the 2016 Hurricane Season in the Atlantic and already, Tropical Depression Two has now been declared by the National Hurricane Center earlier this afternoon.
As of the 5:00pm Eastern/21:00 UTC Advisory from the National Hurricane Center, after being a major "Tropical Suspense" as Invest 91-L, the storm is now aiming for the Carolina coastline over the Memorial Day weekend, which if you are planning to head to the coastline this holiday weekend...sorry for your loss, time to reconsider it.
Projected Path shows for the newly formed Tropical Depression to be strengthening to a Tropical Storm as it about to reach to the South Carolina coast this coming weekend. Meaning that we could have Bonnie in the coming weekend, probably either later tonight or early tomorrow morning. And already following the Advisory.
Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect from the entire South Carolina coast from the Georgia/South Carolina to the South Carolina/North Carolina border. If you don't know what that means, A Tropical Storm Warning means that Tropical Storm conditions are expected in the next 36 hours meaning heavy rain, strong winds, and rip currents are included as the storm progresses. If the storm does get named, and it's highly possible, it will be the second time a tropical system get named in the Atlantic before the official start of the season. The first time since the 2012 Season. I mean, we already have Alex back in January, and now we will have soon to be Bonnie in the coming hours. So guys, looks like this hurricane season will be an interesting one. And speaking of that, NOAA released their predictions for the 2016 Season, calling for a Near-Normal season with 10-16 Named Storms, 4-8 Hurricanes, and 1-4 Major. Well...looks like this is going to be a possibly busy weekend, despite I supposed to be on vacation from live blogging on the ol' Tumblr. So if you live in the Carolina Coastline, time to get ready for this storm.
