Storm Analysis

No further QuickLooks will be posted for this storm unless oceanographic conditions warrant and/or the National Hurricane Center (NHC) issues a new tropical storm or hurricane warning for the U.S. or its territories.

As of 06/08/2013 01:00 EDT, water levels along the East Coast from North Carolina to Maine, including the Chesapeake Bay and the Delaware Bay, are slightly elevated and range between 0.3 and 1.2 feet above tidal predictions.  Winds are moderate along the coast, ranging between 10 and 20 knots, with gusts up to 25 knots.  Barometric pressure continues to rise behind the storm in Virginia and North Carolina. Barometric pressure is falling ahead of the strom along the East Coast from Maryland to Maine.

Water levels in bays and associated waterways may include impacts from hydrological forces, including rainfall runoff.  For additional hydrological information see NWS Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Services or National Weather Service Forecast Office.
