Good day everyone!
The majority of Global Models on the 12Z run still indicate a coastal / offshore storm to develop by the 26th-27th. The GFS is presenting the strongest storm, followed by the CMC, with the ECMWF showing a weaker, and elongated low pressure area. This begins in the extreme northern GOMEX, crossing the FL. Peninsula, and emerging off the SEUS coast on a NE track.
Wind, wave and surf maps indicate tropical storm force conditions in some areas, especially offshore as this system passes. This could pose a potential for possible minor coastal flooding and beach erosion in some places. The tight pressure gradient inland and to the north, could produce blizzard conditions over any areas that may receive precipitation, which appears to be closer toward the coast and limited.

I will be monitoring this next week for model consistency as far as deepening and track.
Please utilize the maps during the weekend for your convenience and update information. As always, all maps are linked for you to click on and receive updated information.
