Low Area Heading Toward US
02:00 PM EDT - 26 October 2000
There is a low pressure system moving generally toward the west or westnorthwest north of the Bahamas approaching the US. It will probably head more north and northeastward later on before it gets too close, however. Right now it can be considered a non-tropical low system. Hurricane Hunter aircraft are on the way to check it out, needless to say it could bring nasty weather to the east coast of the US or Canada in the form of tropical or non-tropical storm. In fact, a non-tropical system has a much larger windfield (although normally nowhere near as strong as a hurricane). It could convert itself into a subtropical or tropical system, so we will be closely watching it.
