Atlantic Tropical Update - 8/27/2010

Posted by barbagris | Posted in | Posted on 14:19

Hello to all...

The Atlantic Tropics continue to be active. Another system off of Africa has a high chance for development south of the Cape Verde Islands. This system has the potential to become a tropical depression in the next 48 hours and will be monitored. Here are updates on Hurricane Danielle and Tropical Storm Earl:

Hurricane Danielle is now a Category-IV Hurricane on the Saffir/Simpson Hurricane scale which classifies Danielle as a major hurricane and the first major hurricane of the 2010 Tropical Atlantic Season. Danielle is expected to recurve out to sea far east of Bermuda. Interests in Bermuda, however, are asked to monitor the progress of Danielle until it makes the complete turn north and northeast away from the island per strong computer weather model agreement.

Tropical Storm Earl is expected to intensify over the next several days and become a hurricane with some potential for Earl to become a major hurricane around or after 5 days. Earl is not expected to affect any land areas until late in the period, where some models bring the system closer to the Bahamas while other models bring the system further out into the open Atlantic. This will depend on the strength of 'the ridge' or high pressure between 60 West and 70 West longtitude. Earl will continue to bear close watching as it traverses across the Central Atlantic Ocean.

Earl and Danielle advisory information can be seen on the VoIPWXNet web site by looking under Atlantic Tropical Products off the Main Menu of the web site. Earl and Danielle Advisory information can also be seen off the National Hurricane Center web site via the following link:

The 2010 Atlantic Hurricane Season is starting to live up to its forecasted high activity level forecasted by NOAA and Dr. Gray's hurricane forecast team out of Colorado State University. The VoIP Hurricane Net Management Team will continue to monitor all systems in the tropics and will provide updates as necessary. Thanks to all for their continued support of the VoIP Hurricane Net!
