UPDATE 6/``14/21 11 PM

NHC has upgraded TD 2 to Tropical Storm Bill, the second named storm of the season. The storm's appearance on satellite has improved through the afternoon and has strengthened to a tropical storm. Winds are at 45 mph with gusts to 60. Movement is quickly to the NE @ 23 mph. The storm is forecast to stay well offshore of the U.S. East Coast with an approach toward Labrador/Newfoundland by Wednesday. Some additional strengthening is possible in the next day or so, but the storm will move into cooler water and increasing wind shear by mid-week that should lead to weakening.

5PM UPDATE

Tropical Depression Two has weakened a bit this afternoon but still retains a tight circulation which means it could become a tropical storm soon. No changes have been made to the forecast. It has about 24 hours to strengthen before it is expected to lose strength & become extratropical as it moves NE.

11AM FORECAST ADVISORY

Tropical Depression Two was located 105 miles east Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. The depression is moving toward the northeast near 21 mph, and this general motion is expected through Wednesday with increasing forward speed. Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. The depression is expected to become a tropical storm by tonight and could continue to strengthen on Tuesday. The system should begin to weaken by Tuesday night and is expected to dissipate on Wednesday.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb.

SPECIAL STATEMENT 10:06AM 6/``14/21

Tropical Depression #2 has formed off the coast of North Carolina. That National Hurricane Center will issue the first full advisory at 11AM.
The system poses no threat to the U.S. as it moves away from the coast. If it strengthens to a Tropical Storm the next name on the list is Bill.

FOX 4 MORNING METEOROLOGIST TRENT ARIC

FIRST UPDATE 6/``14/21 9 AM

NHC is monitoring low pressure off the NC coast that is showing signs of organization. The system is expected to remain offshore and could become a tropical depression sometime in the next couple of days. Its future looks grim, however, as cooler water and increasing wind shear will likely keep the storm from strengthening further. It will pass well north of Bermuda.
