After weakening and making a slow trek up the Atlantic coast, Bonnie has strengthened slightly and redeveloped into a Tropical Depression.

The center is located about 25 miles ESE of Cape Hatteras, NC. It is still moving very slowly, now NE at 7 mph. Maximum winds have increased to near 30 mph.

Some slight strengthening is possible during the next 24 hours.

After that time, Bonnie is expected to again become a post-tropical low.

Bonnie will linger off of the Hatteras coast on Thursday before moving off into the Atlantic on Friday.

The main threat from this system will continue to be moderate to heavy rain over Eastern North Carolina. Localized flooding is possible along the Outer Banks. We will also see an increased risk for rip currents, rough surf and localized coastal flooding.
