Earl strengthened Tuesday to hurricane status despite battling a bit of wind shear in the atmosphere.
Earl isn’t done strengthening yet. Earl may become the first major hurricane of the season by the end of the work week as it moves to an area with lower wind shear. Earl will continue to push north over the next couple of days, then start to turn towards the northeast around Thursday.
Hurricane Danielle is still spinning out in the Northern Atlantic but is slowing down. Danielle is expected to continue to weaken as it approaches cooler waters. It is possible we will see a few direction chances in the patch of Danielle by the weekend.
We are also monitoring some disorganized showers and storms associated with a broad area of low pressure off the coast of Africa. There is a moderate chance for development in the coming 5 days at 60%. In addition, another wave is expected to emerge off the coast of Africa in a day or two.
