Tropical Storm Grace is expected to intensify into a Category 1 hurricane on Wednesday as it moves rapidly towards Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.
Forecasters are also looking at tropical cyclone Henri. Tropical cyclones can intensify hurricanes as they fly over the Atlantic Ocean by the weekend. Neither storm is a threat to Florida.
Other things I know are:
Tropical Storm Grace will soon turn into a Cat1 hurricane
Flood rains and gusts spread throughout the Cayman Islands early Wednesday as the blessings of strong tropical cyclones move rapidly west at 16 mph and gusts intensify at maximum wind speeds of nearly 65 mph.
According to the National Hurricane Center’s 5 am recommendation, the storm was about 40 miles south-southeast of Grand Cayman and about 440 miles south-southeast of Tulum, Mexico. The strong winds of the tropical cyclone extend up to 115 miles from its center.
According to the Hurricane Center, a reporting station near Rum Point Beach on the north bank of Grand Cayman recently measured sustained winds at 40 mph and gusts up to 47 mph.
Forecasts indicate that Grace will continue to move near or over the Cayman Islands on Wednesday morning, and as it approaches the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico on Wednesday night or early Thursday, it will reach a category 1 hurricane with maximum wind speeds of nearly 85 mph. Should be strengthened.
It is expected to land on the northeast coast of the Yucatan Peninsula and should be vulnerable to tropical cyclones by the time it landed in the Bay of Campeche on the weekends. Forecasters predict that they will re-enter the hurricane as they travel over warm waters before landing in central Mexico over the weekend. The Hurricane Center says it will eventually dissipate across the mountains of Central Mexico.
Mexico’s Tropical Cyclone Surveillance has been upgraded to Tropical Cyclone Warnings on the north and west coasts of the Yucatan Peninsula from west of Ziram to Campeche. Jamaica’s Tropical Cyclone Warning was discontinued early, as well as monitoring the Tropical Cyclone Warning and the south coast of Cuba.
Tropical Cyclone Henri can quickly turn into a hurricane
According to the Hurricane Center, a stronger tropical cyclone Henri is moving west in the Atlantic waters between the southeastern coast of the United States and Bermuda, with life-threatening waves and rip currents along the southeastern and central Atlantic coasts by weekend. May bring about the condition of. ..
As of Wednesday’s 5 am recommendation, the storm was about 160 mph south-southwest of Bermuda, with maximum wind speeds of nearly 65 mph, and gusts were strong early Wednesday. The strong winds of its tropical cyclones extend up to 80 miles from its center.
Tropical cyclone conditions may still be felt throughout the island on Wednesday nights, especially south of the island, but Bermuda is no longer under tropical cyclone surveillance.
Forecast predicts that Henri will gradually turn west-northwest by the end of Thursday, then further north and northeast this weekend. Forecasters predict that as soon as Friday, the maximum wind speed will increase to a Category 1 hurricane near 75 mph.
As it traveled across the Atlantic, it was able to see some additional enhancements. However, forecasters warned that there was some uncertainty in its orbit later in the week, and one model shows Henri moving further north towards the New England coast.
“As the uncertainty of orbital forecasts increases, stakeholders along the New England coast need to monitor Henri’s progress,” the forecaster wrote.
