Potential storm off SEUS Coast

It looks like the first Atlantic storm of the season is spinning up just off the Georgia coast.  Here’s the latest (4pm) Visible band satellite image (click to embiggen any of the images):

The current track map shows lots of meandering over the Gulf Stream before it finally moves on, possibly hitting North or South Carolina:

The HWRF model (the light blue line) brings the storm into the central SC coast as a big, diffuse low – maybe briefly reaching tropical storm strength.  Nothing serious to worry about, but worth checking over your emergency supplies for the essentials like SPAM.  Events like this usually rack up a few million dollars in impacts.  That may sound like a lot but in today’s environment it isn’t.
