An Atlantic Ocean disturbance is set to transform into a tropical storm as it approaches North Carolina’s coast by Friday night. This storm is expected to bring strong winds, coastal flooding, and dangerous rip currents northward to New Jersey over the weekend.

The National Hurricane Center issued a tropical storm warning from Cape Fear, N.C., to Fenwick Island, Del., on Thursday. This warning encompasses Albemarle and Pamlico sounds in North Carolina, the Tidal Potomac River south of Cobb Island, Md., and Chesapeake Bay south of North Beach, Md. Additionally, there’s a storm surge watch in effect from just north of Wilmington, N.C., to the Potomac River in Virginia, just south of the Delaware line.

Rainfall estimates range from 3 to 5 inches in North Carolina and Virginia by Saturday, with some areas receiving up to 7 inches. The Mid-Atlantic through southern New England is expected to get 2 to 4 inches of rainfall from late Friday into Sunday, possibly leading to isolated urban and small stream flooding.

Flooding of 2 to 4 feet could occur in areas stretching from Surf City, N.C., to Chincoteague, Va., especially if the storm surge coincides with high tide. Portions of the Outer Banks may experience floodwaters rising between 3 and 5 feet. The surge could also lead to 2 to 4 feet of flooding in the lower Chesapeake Bay and 1 to 3 feet farther up the bay.

The National Hurricane Center anticipates the cyclone’s center to approach the coast of North Carolina within the warning area on Friday night and Saturday. This system, referred to as “Potential Tropical Cyclone 16,” is moving north at 7 mph and is expected to take a northwest-north path later on Friday. There’s a possibility of a few tornadoes in the mid-Atlantic states on Friday and Saturday.

Even if the system doesn’t reach storm status, it is likely to bring hazardous tropical-storm conditions to parts of the southeast and mid-Atlantic coasts, though it’s not expected to intensify into a hurricane. If it reaches tropical storm strength, it will be named Ophelia, marking the 16th named storm of the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper and the state’s department of public safety are urging residents in eastern and central parts of the state to be prepared for tropical weather in the coming days. They are warning of potential hazards such as downed trees, power outages, and flooding, while also advising people to stay informed with the latest weather forecasts.

North Carolina Emergency Management director Will Ray has stated that the department is ready to provide necessary resources.
