Not too much change to the previous forecast. Tropical Storm Nestor will come onshore along the Florida Panhandle later this morning. The system will then quickly move up the Southeast coast and reach the Eastern North Carolina area by tonight. While the system will lose tropical characteristics after landfall, and thus will lose its name, the local impacts are NOT dependent on the tropical nature of the system.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
