Satellites See Post-Tropical Ian Rocketing Towards the Northeast
NOAA’s GOES-East satellite captured this series of images which was made into an animated GIF showing the swirling winds of Post-tropical cyclone Ian as it rocketed eastward away from any land masses.
Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts. The post-tropical cyclone should gradually weaken over the next 36 hours before becoming absorbed by an extratropical low. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 240 miles (390 km) from the center. There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
There are no plans at the National Hurricane Center for further updates on Ian.
