Discussion

Hurricane Joaquin continues to churn near the Bahama Islands as a category 4 storm and is under the influence of weakening upper-level ridging, but soon it will come under the influence of an upper-level trough. Once this upper-level trough approaches the hurricane, it will likely turn northward and then northeast away from the US east coast. In the meantime, the combination of a cold front, strong high pressure to the north, and a "nor'easter-like" low pressure system will produce heavy rainfall and strong onshore winds in the Mid-Atlantic region right into tomorrow. Rainfall amounts of one to as much as four inches are possible in the I-95 corridor from this setup by later tomorrow (the higher amounts near DC, the lesser amounts near NYC). Winds will remain persistent out of the northeast over the next 24 hours with 35 mph gusts at inland locations and 50 mph gusts at the coast. Farther south, staggering amounts of rain can fall over the next few days with 1-2 feet possible in parts of the Carolinas and widespread flooding is quite likely in that part of the country.
