Update on IGOR
Hello and happy Tuesday everyone. IGOR continue to stir up the Atlantic waters at category 4 strength with sustained wins at 135mph. IGOR is the 3rd CAT 4 storm in the Atlantic Basin this season. It was forecast to intensify to CAT 5 strength yesterday, but never made it. Regardless, this is still a very potent storm that will likely track towards Bermuda as a fairly large/strong storm. Take a look at this amazing satellite loop of IGOR from the 13th:
Tracking Towards Bermuda
The latest forecast track has IGOR nearing Bermuda by the weekend. Track IGOR here:
More Storm Brewing in the Atlantic
IGOR isn’t the only storm the National Hurricane Center is watching. Say hello to Hurricane JULIA and another cluster of storms in the western Caribbean. JULIA is likely to stay in the central Atlantic and only be problematic to ships and slow moving whales, while the cluster of storms in the western Caribbean could cause some issues in Mexico and the Gulf of Mexico withing the next few days… perhaps even grow into Tropical Storm KARL strength.
Could 92L Become KARL?
This is a look at the 84 hour 12-hour precipitation forecast. It looks very hurricane-like doesn’t it? I wouldn’t doubt it if we add another hurricane to the 2010 list within the next couple/few days when/if KARL does develop.
Alrighty then, that’s about all for today. Thanks for stopping by and we’ll see you again real soon!
