Tropical Storm Rose: Rose is located much farther east over the Atlantic Ocean. This system is forecast to track over the Eastern Atlantic Ocean and not affect any land areas. Rose has max winds of 40 mph as of the 11am Monday advisory.

Rose is expected to stay well out over the deep Atlantic over the next 5 days

Neither of these systems appear to threaten Eastern NC thanks to a strong cold front likely to pass our area at midweek. This front will move off the coast and act as a barrier.
