BONNIE making rain

What's left of BONNIE is tracking along the coast of the Carolinas, somewhere between Myrtle Beach and Wilmington now. This is headed northeast at little more than walking speed. Despite briefly making tropical storm strength, this hasn't really impressed anyone with wind speeds and is barely producing 30 knots at the moment. Earlier, some of the chatterers had this bouncing back to sea with a glint in its eye, but I fear they will be disappointed. This is however, still making rain along the coastal areas of eastern South Carolina, North Carolina and south-eastern Virginia.

Further to the south, disturbance two is continuing to move north away from Hispaniola into an area which has mucky conditions aloft. This won't encourage meaningful development and this is likely to head seaward and fade.

Foul weather gear needed in the Carolinas, otherwise stand easy.
