    DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
    ----------------------
    At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression
    Claudette was located near latitude 34.2 North, longitude 82.5 West.
    The depression is moving toward the east-northeast near 17 mph (28
    km/h). An east-northeastward to northeastward motion with some
    increase in forward speed is expected over the next couple of days.
    On the forecast track, the system should continue to move across
    portions of the southeastern U.S. through tonight, move over the
    coast of North Carolina into the western Atlantic Ocean on Monday,
    and pass near or just south of Nova Scotia on Tuesday.

    Maximum sustained winds remain near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher
    gusts. Some re-strengthening is expected tonight, and Claudette is
    forecast to become a tropical storm again late tonight or early
    Monday over eastern North Carolina. Some additional strengthening
    is possible over the western Atlantic Ocean through early Tuesday.
    Claudette is expected to become a post-tropical cyclone Tuesday
    afternoon or Tuesday night.

    The estimated minimum central pressure from surface observations is
    1009 mb (29.80 inches).


    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
    ----------------------
    Key messages for Claudette can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
    Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT3, WMO header WTNT43 KNHC,
    and on the web at http://www.hurricanes.gov .

    RAINFALL: Claudette is expected to produce additional rainfall
    totals of 2 to 4 inches with isolated maximum totals of 6 inches
    across North Florida, southeastern Georgia, central and coastal
    South Carolina into central to eastern North Carolina through Monday
    morning. Flash, urban and small stream flooding impacts, as well as
    isolated minor river flooding are possible across these areas.

    Storm total rainfall of 5 to 10 inches with isolated 15 inch amounts
    was observed in southeast Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern
    Alabama, and the western Florida panhandle.

    For the latest rainfall reports and wind gusts associated with
    Claudette, see the companion storm summary at WBCSCCNS3 with the
    WMO header ACUS43 KWBC or at the following link: https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/discussions/nfdscc3.html__;!!DZ3fjg!se3DVZvT_nUuE9nzFuYlQYwslGNTXAUw3OUyvbH7UHi8ivzRJ-DT1RhNQNKJ2xyVKXRpVgRr$


    STORM SURGE: The combination of storm surge and the tide will
    cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising
    waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water could reach the
    following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if
    the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

    NC/VA Border to Cape Lookout, NC...1-3 ft
    Cape Lookout, NC to Little River Inlet, SC...1-2 ft

    Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge
    and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances. For information specific to your area, please see products issued by
    your local National Weather Service forecast office.

    WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to begin in the
    warning area late tonight or early Monday. Tropical storm
    conditions are possible in the watch area tonight and Monday.

    TORNADOES: Isolated tornadoes are possible this evening across
    parts of the central and eastern Carolinas.
