Tropics Update


The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is monitoring two areas of disturbed weather.

The first is across Central America and is mostly over land.  The forecast is for little additional strengthening.

The second area is just north of the Caribbean and east of the Bahamas.  The NHC has been watching this one very closely, and has sent an aircraft to investigate it.  Some strengthening is forecast the next few days.  If the storm hits winds of 39 mph or higher, it will be named Danny.

Various computer models take the center of the system close to the Atlantic seaboard, and a few bring it on land near the Carolinas.   We will continue to watch it the rest of the week.
