STORMTRACK 3: The first Tropical Depression of the Atlantic season forms off the coast of Florida

Monday, June 30th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A persistent area of low pressure continues to organize off the Florida coast. At 11 PM Monday night, the system became the first Tropical Depression of the Atlantic Hurricane Season.

According to our Pinpoint Futurecast model, this system will remain near Florida through early Wednesday morning. An approaching cold front will then guide the system on a northeastward track Thursday and Friday. Such a path would allow the storm to pass very close to southeastern North Carolina. As a result, showers/thunderstorms will increase in coverage late Thursday and Friday. The system will depart our area by early Saturday, allowing a typical summertime pattern to resume for most of the weekend.

NC man captured on video riding on back of car

Monday, June 30th, 2014

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — Police in North Carolina say a man clung to the back of a moving car as it drove down an interstate highway.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police spokesman Keith Trietley said Monday that the man was trying to stop a woman who drove off after the man assaulted her inside a store. A police report said the man grabbed the woman’s arm and pulled her down during an argument.

Trietley said the man was not injured from riding on the car Saturday. He said the woman does not want to press charges against the man. He did not release their names.

Trietley said he could not say how long the man rode on the back of the car on Interstate 77 or how fast the vehicle was moving. He said police were contacted by motorists, one of whom recorded the ride on video.
