By Space Coast Daily // July 9, 2020
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – National Hurricane Center has upgraded the possibility that a disturbance located near the Carolina coast is likely to develop into Tropical Storm Fay by later today or Friday.
The system poses no threat to Florida but it could cause issues and delays for travelers heading to the northeast weekend.
As of Thursday morning, the system has 80-percent chance to develop into a tropical storm in the next two days, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Experts anticipate the system is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall that could cause some flash flooding across portions of eastern North Carolina, the coastal mid-Atlantic and southern New England during the next few days.
An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate this system later today.
