Tropical Storm Earl joins Danielle in the Atlantic

Tropical Storm Earl joins Danielle in the Atlantic
Written by admin

Danielle was weakened by a tropical storm on Saturday, but should recover somewhat in the next few days.

Maximum sustained winds have dropped to nearly 70mph with higher gusts. Only a small change in strength is expected on Saturday. A light refreshment is expected Saturday night leading into Labor Day and Danielle could regain strength on Sunday.

While it’s not known why the storm weakened, one possibility is that the slow motion allowed the cyclone to kick up cold water underneath.

At 11:00 am east coast, Tropical Storm Danielle was about 325 miles west of the Azores and moving at a speed of 2 miles per hour.

Tropical Storm Earl

Danielle is just one of two tropical cyclones FOX Forecast Center monitored in the Atlantic basin.

Tropical Storm Earl formed east of the Caribbean Sea on Friday night after battling hostile high-level winds and dry air for days.

The cyclone has wind speeds of around 40 miles per hour. Tropical Storm Earl is not expected to strengthen much as it is generally heading west and northwest.

Forecasters say there’s even a chance the system will degenerate over the next few days due to an increase in hostile atmospheric conditions.

The cyclone is expected to remain north of the Caribbean islands but could intensify rain and waves over the weekend.

The system is not expected to pose a threat to the Southeast and is forecast to turn safely away from the US next week.

The tropical storm is forecast to gain a little strength, but will remain a tropical storm as it eventually turns west and into the open Pacific.

While the storm is not expected to make landfall, dangerous, life-threatening waves and currents are possible along the central and southern Baja California peninsula. The area could see 1-2 inches of rain with isolated amounts up to 4 inches.
