Here's a overall view on the active Atlantic basin! We have: Invest 95L, Major Hurricane Florence, Tropical Storm Isaac, Tropical Storm Joyce and Hurricane Helene.
This is the latest update on Major Hurricane Florence. Max winds at 115 MPH. A downfall from the 140 MPH earlier HOWEVER DO. NOT. UNDERESTIMATE. FLORENCE. We believe that Florence is undergoing eye replacement plus with it's approach to land, it's starting to broaden out a bit. Florence still has great potential to bring catastrophic damage to the southeast coast! If you haven't evacuated, you need to NOW! You have less than 48 hours left.
Here's the latest on Invest 95L. This system is battling against shear and some dry air in the Gulf of Mexico. It still has a 70% chance of becoming a named storm or a tropical depression over the next day or so before going into northeast mexico/southeast texas coastline. Main threats will be gusty winds and heavy rainfall even if it doesn't develop.
Here's a update on Tropical Storm Isaac. Now I believe that this is the storm to watch after Florence. The GFS (which I may say nailed Florence) and the Canadian model guidance is dead on about bringing Isaac into the gulf and potentially making a landfall along the northern gulf coastline. The steering flow supports that idea but it is WAY TOO FAR OUT to call anything right now. Isaac is currently fighting shear and dry air across the east Caribbean right now but if it can survive that then all eyes will turn to the gulf once again.
Here's a update on Hurricane Helene. She will be a fish storm as she is moving very fast to the north then eventually to the northeast
This section covers the Gulf of Mexico coastline from Brownsville, Texas to Key West, Florida and every town in between.
