Tropical alert: Tropical Storm Don forms in Atlantic

Tropical alert: Tropical Storm Don forms in Atlantic

The one which now has the bigger chance of developing into Tropical Storm Dan is an area of low pressure located about 750 miles east of the Windward Islands.

It is beginning to look more organized, forecasters said, but lacks a defined center of circulation.

The U.S National Hurricane Center reported that Fernanda's maximum sustained winds were at 140 miles per hour (230 kph), making it a powerful, Category 4 hurricane. It will be battling dry air and strong wind shear over the Caribbean, which will likely hinder further tropical development. The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) in Miami said this morning that it has a 50 percent chance of developing in the next two days.

An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance plane is scheduled to investigate the disturbance Monday afternoon, if necessary.

Spaghetti models are in general agreement that Invest 95L's projected path will take the system westward across the southern Caribbean Sea before making landfall along the coast of Central America.

It has a 20 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression over the next five days.
