Tropical storm watch issued for coast of North Carolina

Tropical storm watch issued for coast of North Carolina

Steward said winds coming out of the Southeast by mid-week will dictate how close Maria comes to North Carolina.

"Regardless of the exact forecast track", the storm is so big that "tropical storm-force winds could reach a portion of the North Carolina coast by mid-week", the NHC said. Storms are classified as hurricanes when their sustained winds surpass 74 miles per hour - that has happened seven times in 2017 so far. It also hammered the Dominican Republic, the US Virgin Islands and the Turks and Caicos, a British overseas territory.

Regardless of an Outer Banks hit, graze or close miss, Maria is expected to move away to the east rapidly.

Maria is expected to maintain its status as a hurricane through at least Thursday, when it is predicted that the storm will carry sustained winds of 74 miles per hour.

The official NHC forecast suggests Maria will stay offshore of the East Coast and track somewhere between the Carolinas and Bermuda through midweek.

The rankings are based on teacher pay, quality of school system, pupil to teacher ratio and teacher safety, among other things. SC ranked No. 49 overall, trailed only by Hawaii and Arizona, who fell to the bottom as the worst states for teachers.

Maria is moving toward the northwest near 9 miles per hour.

A northerly turn will continue to push it north of the Bahamas over the weekend.

A tropical storm watch has been issued for the North Carolina coast from Surf City northward to the state's Virginia border including the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds. It should not be a threat to land according to the hurricane center.

Dare County officials are asking residents and visitors to stay informed and prepare for tropical storm conditions starting as early as Tuesday.

Jose is almost stationary and little motion is expected over the next two days. Such swells are expected to be felt along the southeastern USA coast and Bermuda tonight and should continue on Saturday.

Increasing swells and rip current risks are possible due to Maria's proximity to our coastline this weekend through next Tuesday.
