Tropical Storm Fay (AL062020)

NHC has started advisories on AL062020, Tropical Storm Fay.  The main threat is some localized flash flooding as it skirts the coast and moves inland over the next 36 hours.  Fay probably won’t intensify much – it’s too close to land.  Here is the forecast impact swath based on the 5pm Thursday 9 July official forecast track:

Economic impacts shouldn’t be severe, probably just over $100 Million.  Unfortunately most won’t be covered by insurance due to the named storm deductibles that are now on most homeowner and business policies.   It is unlikely that significant evacuations will be called for, which would play havoc with pandemic social distancing plans.
