A coastal low currently just about bombing over the west Atlantic just east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. Several model runs forecast this development days in advance, with a few of them even suggesting that the storm will develop in such a way that once it passes over warmer waters to it's southwest it will further acquire at least some tropical characteristics, and thus perhaps become a potent hybrid system.
