A massive storm stirring off the Southeast coast Tuesday morning is far from becoming a tropical storm, but strong wind gusts could affect shoreline erosion, increase rip currents and create hazardous boating conditions.That satellite image sure looks like a tropical system to me. I'll take the experts word for a change that it isn't.
Meteorologists at the National Weather Service in Melbourne, who have been watching the low-pressure storm since Monday, said buoys out in the Atlantic recorded wind gusts of up to 70 mph. Today's forecast shows slower wind speeds. The storm is centered about 230 miles east-southeast of the Georgia-South Carolina coasts.
Models indicate the storm is moving west-southwest.
Despite diminishing wind speeds, some coastal areas could still be affected.
Strong winds -- up to 30 mph in some places -- in combination with ongoing low humidity could produce fire sensitive conditions, especially in areas of Central Florida where firefighters continue battling brush fires.
