    DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
    ------------------------------
    At 1100 AM EDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Bonnie
    was located near latitude 33.2 North, longitude 79.8 West. The
    depression is moving toward the north near 9 mph (15 km/h), and
    this general motion with a reduction in forward speed is expected
    today.  A slow northeastward motion is expected tonight and Monday.
    On the forecast track, the center of Bonnie is expected to remain
    inland over northeastern South Carolina through Monday.
    
    Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
    Some slight weakening is forecast today, followed by little change
    in strength tonight and Monday.
    
    The estimated minimum central pressure is 1009 mb (29.80 inches).
    
    
    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
    ----------------------
    RAINFALL:  Bonnie is expected to produce total rainfall
    accumulations of 2 to 4 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 8
    inches from east-central Georgia into central to eastern South
    Carolina, and 1 to 3 inches farther north across southeastern North
    Carolina.  Heavy rain is expected to develop well north of Bonnie's
    main circulation into parts of the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast
    with total accumulations of 1 to 2 inches through Monday and
    isolated maximum amounts of 4 inches.
    
    WIND: Wind gusts to near tropical storm force are possible along
    the south-central coast of South Carolina today.
    
    SURF: Bonnie is expected to produce dangerous surf and rip current
    conditions along portions of the southeastern United States coast
    through the weekend. Please consult products from your local
    weather office.

  • Tropical Depression BONNIE Forecast Discussion Number 8 - Issued at 1100 AM EDT SUN MAY 29 2016

    WTNT42 KNHC 291444
    TCDAT2
    
    TROPICAL DEPRESSION BONNIE DISCUSSION NUMBER   8
    NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       AL022016
    1100 AM EDT SUN MAY 29 2016
    
    Most of the deep convection associated with the tropical cyclone
    became separated from the center overnight, and Bonnie weakened to a
    tropical depression before reaching the south-central coast of South
    Carolina. Aircraft data indicate that Bonnie made landfall just east
    of Charleston near the Isle of Palms around 1230 UTC.
    
    The tropical cyclone has continued to move faster than expected,
    with an initial motion estimate of 360/8 kt.  The global models
    insist that a reduction in forward speed will occur today while the
    cyclone moves around the northwestern portion of a low- to mid-level
    ridge over the western Atlantic.  As a result of the faster forward
    motion, the NHC forecast track has been adjusted northward
    accordingly, and now shows the center moving farther inland during
    the next day or so.  After 48 hours, a slightly faster northeastward
    motion is expected to begin.  The updated NHC track is close to the
    GFS/ECMWF consensus.
    
    Bonnie is forecast to weaken some during the next 12 to 24 hours,
    but little change in strength is expected after that time since a
    portion of the circulation could be over water. A track farther
    inland than anticipated would result in a faster rate of weakening,
    and Bonnie would become a remnant low sooner in this scenario.
    
    The primary impact from Bonnie will continue to be locally heavy
    rainfall, which is occurring over much of eastern Georgia, and
    portions of the Carolinas.  These rains will gradually spread
    northeastward over the Mid-Atlantic region during the next couple
    of days.
