EDISON - A hurricane warning has been issued for the North Carolina coast as Hurricane Earl continues its path toward the U.S.

A hurricane watch was extended today into Delaware, ahead of the powerful Category 3 storm.

News 12 New Jersey meteorologist James Gregorio says rain is possible on Friday, especially for parts of the state near the coast. Rough surf and dangerous rip currents are expected for all of the Jersey Shore.

Earl is located about 725 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., and moving northwest near 17 mph.

Meanwhile, a new tropical depression has formed far out in the Atlantic, says Gregorio. The depression is likely to strengthen into a tropical storm in the next 48 hours.
