Potential tropical cyclone 2
The second possible tropical cyclone is currently located to the east and southeast of the Windward Islands, and environmental conditions are currently favorable for the system to continue to develop into a tropical depression or tropical storm. A Hurricane Hunter investigated the system this afternoon and found it had sustained winds of tropical storm force; However, closed trading has not yet been developed.
- Site: 105 miles west – northwest of Trinidad
- Max wind speed: 40 mph
- direction: West and Northwest at 26 mph
When hurricane formation is imminent, residents in the vicinity of the Windward Islands should monitor local news outlets and official hurricane center guidance, make appropriate preparations for potential impacts including heavy rain, flooding, strong winds and storm surge, and take care of any evacuations that may be ordered. The Hurricane Center will continue to closely monitor this system and update warnings accordingly. At present, the system is expected to move westward across the southern Caribbean from Wednesday through Friday.
How likely is it to strengthen it?
Hurricane conditions appear to be looming in the near future as a potential second tropical cyclone continues to gain strength. Currently, the maximum sustained winds are 40 mph, but they are expected to get stronger in the next few days as the turbulence is still over the water. If hurricane conditions develop, winds could reach 75 miles per hour. Currently, tropical storm winds extend outward about 60 miles from the center of the disturbance. All this points to a hurricane occurring off the coast of Central America, although it first has to make its way through the Windward Islands near the southern Caribbean. Hurricane warnings could be put in place for this storm system in the coming days.
As a potential Tropical Cyclone 2 grows stronger, it’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest advice from the hurricane center. Texans who have experienced flooding in the past should take extra precautions this time around and prepare for potential water damage.
