Erika Redevelopment Recap
Over the past several days the weather world has been keeping a close eye on Erika, just about until yesterday, when it became a remnant low off the northern coast of Cuba. After that point at 9:30 yesterday, almost all hope was lost for the redevelopment of Erika, but according to some short range computer models, the remnants moving northward across Central Florida, may redevelop a center of circulation soon off the Southeastern Coast. So we’ll keep a close watch on this system over the upcoming several days.
Tropical Storm Fred Overview
Tropical Storm Fred formed yesterday off the coast of the Cape Verde Islands and is expected to become a hurricane while moving further northwest towards the central Atlantic. Fred will thereafter weaken to a Tropical Storm once more and move quite quickly through the central Atlantic, the eventual destination is still at this point unknown.
Hawaii Hurricane Threat
Hurricane Ignacio is now a Category Four storm with winds upwards of 140 MPH, this storm is barreling to the northwest and is expected to graze the northern sides of the islands of Maui and the Big Island. At the moment, Tropical Storm Watches are in effect for locations within The Big Island and all of Maui County. For those with interests in the islands potentially affected by the storm, please continue to monitor the progress of this storm over the upcoming few days.
Weather 360 will continue to keep you updated on all of these threats over the coming days.
