The National Weather Service forecast for tomorrow is likely to be much less than yesterday's forecast.
Rain will begin to fall late Monday evening into Tuesday morning. Winds will become stronger and gusts will rise.
There will likely be at least three high totals of 35 mph and greater near the coast. In some areas, the number of severe thunderstorm totals could reach 50 mph. Temperatures could peak in the 80s.
Temperatures will reach the mid- to high- 90s for the northern portion of the coast. The number of high totals could reach 70 mph and greater throughout. Temperatures may peak in the upper 80s.
Most likely, there will be an extreme storm surge. This will occur as an ice cloud will move over the coast. In most places, there will be at least one ice cap around the coast. In some locations, the sea ice may extend to the coastline. Storm surge will be at a very high level.
It is not yet clear if the total amount of rain will exceed what is expected.
Forecasters have made adjustments, however, in the storm path in hopes of minimizing some of the damage. Forecasters said the National Hurricane Center is looking for some areas to receive less of the rain than expected.
Some communities along the coastline have experienced very heavy, high amounts of rain, said forecasters.
Forecasters are working to improve the situation. Forecasters are trying to increase the storm center's visibility as much as possible by making the weather center's radar system more visible and providing additional radar coverage.
The National Weather Service has issued the following warnings for coastal areas along the coast of the United States. Areas of concern include areas near the coast, in the northern and eastern portion of inland Louisiana and Mississippi, and along the western coast of the United States. Forecasters also are warning residents to be ready for heavy storms on Tuesday.
