Tracking the Tropics: Earl to become a major hurricane in coming days, Danielle tracks northeast 


Earl now has winds sustained at 80 mph and is expected to become the first major hurricane of the season within the coming days. The system poses no threat to the U.S. as it tracks to the north. Earl will bring strong winds to Bermuda and a life-threatening rip current risk. 

Earl will continue to push north over the next couple of days, then start to turn towards the northeast by Friday. The system is battling strong wind shear for now, but by the weekend, wind shear will be lower, and the system will be able to strengthen further. 

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 changes in the path 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 five days at 60%. In addition, another wave is expected to emerge off the coast of Africa in a day or two.

The next name on the list is Fiona. Be sure you are prepared by counting on the NBC2 First Alert Hurricane Tracking Team.  You can brush up on your tropical weather knowledge using our NBC2 online hurricane guide+ here!
