The location of the current system is also shown. Infrared Satellite Image The highest cloud tops, corresponding to the most vigorous convection, are shown in the orange and red colors. The cone is then formed by smoothly connecting the area swept out by the set of circles.
The dot indicating the forecast center location will be black if the cyclone is forecast to be tropical and will be white with a black outline if the cyclone is forecast to be extratropical.
Some localized flooding will be possible depending on the track of the low. Considering the combined forecast uncertainties in track, intensity, and size, the chances that any particular location will experience winds of 34 kt tropical storm force50 kt, or 64 kt hurricane force from this tropical cyclone are presented in tabular form for selected locations and forecast positions.
The distribution of hurricane and tropical storm force winds in this tropical cyclone can be seen in the Wind History graphic linked above.
Projected Path The red-shaded area denotes the potential path of the center of the tropical cyclone. In Florida, high water closed Highway 98 in Okaloosa County for two days.
Tropical Depression Nine, still fighting wind shear, may finally gain enough steam to become a tropical storm late Tuesday, then will make its turn toward the Gulf Coast Wednesday with heavy rain and gusty winds. Gusty winds could also affect a swath from coastal Georgia to the coastal Carolinas Thursday night through Friday.
The area experiencing hurricane force one-minute average wind speeds of at least 74 mph and tropical storm force one-minute average wind speeds of mph winds can extend well beyond the white areas shown enclosing the most likely track area of the center. Current Satellite, Wind Shear Areas of high wind shear are shown in the purple contours.
Gusty winds will accompany the storm at landfall both near the center of circulation and in squalls away from the low.
Measurements from Hurricane Hunter reconnaissance aircraft and dropsondes from unmanned NASA Global Hawk aerial drones have continued to measured winds below tropical storm-force, so far.
However, this system will have a deep fetch of tropical moisture along its eastern and southern flank. For now, if you have interests anywhere in Florida and along the Southeast coast, check back with us at weather.
Rainfall flooding may be the biggest concern from this system later in the week. At this time, the NHC expects this system to be a tropical storm as it approaches the Florida Gulf coast later this week. Note that impacts particularly heavy rain, high surf, coastal flooding with any tropical cyclone may spread beyond its forecast path.
High surf and some coastal flooding would also be possible depending on the track of the low.
Hurricane and Tropical Storm Watches Issued: A slug of heavy rain may also push northeast into southern Georgia and the eastern Carolinas Thursday night through Friday. If only an L is displayed, then the system is forecast to be a remnant low.
Water rise from storm surge alone could reach 3 feet, or locally a bit higher, along the Florida Gulf Coast well north of St. Follow updates to this article here. Hundreds of miles east from where Ike made landfall, and far from where the forecast path is drawn on the map to the right, significant storm surge inundation also occurred.
Therefore, bands of heavy rain could train along and south of its path over the Florida peninsula possibly into Friday. The convection has moved closer to the center of circulation as of Tuesday afternoon, but tropical-storm-force winds are still missing, which is why the system is still a depression.This graphic shows an approximate representation of coastal areas under a hurricane warning (red), hurricane watch (pink), tropical storm warning (blue) and tropical storm watch (yellow).
The orange circle indicates the current position of the center of the tropical cyclone. The black line, when. May 22, · The forecast path for a tropical storm or hurricane shows where the center of a storm is expected to track.
Impacts from a particular storm can be felt well outside of the forecast path.
