Tropical Storm Cristobal moving slowly northward

As of 6 a.m. Sunday, the National Hurricane Center Tropical Depression Four strengthen Tropical Storm Cristobal the 3rd named 2014 Hurricane Atlantic season.
 
As of 2 pm, Sunday, Tropical Storm had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph and a minimum central pressure of 1001 mb.
Cristobal was located about 145 miles east of Long Island and is moving north at 7 mph. Tropical storm warnings are in effect for the southeastern and central Bahamas.
 
The official forecast track keeps Cristobal a tropical storm through Wednesday then pushing out to sea as a Category 1 Hurricane. At this time, the majority of the forecast models keep Cristobal away from the U.S. but we will continue to keep a close eye on this and alert you with any changes. The system is expected to continue to move slowly to the north-nothwestward Sunday.
 
As the way it stands, the impact for southeastern NC of this system will be some high swells and strong rip currents.
 
You can always find the latest information on our Facebook or Twitter and on Hurricanes 101.
