May 5: Watching the Tropics

Low pressure, as pictured by NOAA, is organizing over the Greater Antilles. It should form a surface low later today and track towards the SE US between now and early next week. If the surface low meets tropical storm criteria, it will be named Ana. New Jersey impacts should be little to nothing at all. Should a landfall occur in the SE US, it will likely be in the South Carolina area (or just offshore of SC) later this week. It would then drift, while weakening, towards OBX and possibly absorb into a passing cold front sometime next week. All that would do is enhance rainfall along the cold front allowing for widespread rainfall instead of scattered rainfall. I’d use caution along the beaches this weekend regarding rip currents. Otherwise, that’s about all we can expect for New Jersey impacts from the current SE US area being watched. Be safe! JC
