In the tropics, Claudette has restrengthened into a tropical storm.  At 5 am Monday, TS Claudette was located near 35.6 North, 77.5 West, about 65 miles east-southeast of Raleigh, North Carolina.  Maximum sustained winds were 40 miles per hour, and Claudette was moving east-northeast at 25 miles per hour.  A tropical storm warning is in effect from Cape Fear to Duck, North Carolina.  Flooding rainfall is the major threat from Claudette as it emerges into the Atlantic later on Monday and accelerates into the north Atlantic before devolving into a trough on Tuesday.

Elsewhere, a wave about 1000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles has a low chance of developing during the next few days and will encounter unfavorable conditions late in the workweek.
