Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Tue Jul 7 2020

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

An area of low pressure located inland over northeastern Georgia is 
producing a large area of showers and heavy rain over portions of 
the southeastern U.S. The low is expected to move generally 
northeastward toward the coast of the Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic 
states and some development of this system is possible later this 
week if it moves over water. Regardless of development, the low is 
forecast to produce locally heavy rainfall that could cause flash 
flooding across portions of the southeastern U.S. during the next 
couple of days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.
