Tropics Relatively Quiet

Tropics are getting quiet after a brief flurry of activity over the past few weeks.

As of late Friday Tropical Storm Fred is the only system of importance in the Atlantic Ocean.  Fred is about 3,000 miles off the North Carolina coast and will not pose a threat to our area.  In fact, it appears that Fred will weaken to a tropical depression by Sunday and Monday as he stays well out to sea.  Otherwise the tropics are very quiet and I don't expected any development over the next few days.  We are now passed the highest peak of the tropical season and eastern North Carolina has been fortunate.  We are certainly not out of the woods since big storms have occurred as late as the middle of October.  However, with each passing day our chances of going another year without a storm improve.
