[Outdated Post] Tropical Storm Earl Forms – Strengthening Likely before Landfall in Belize Wednesday Night

   Posted by Levi at 1:09am on August 3, 2016

Update 9:00am EDT Wednesday:

Tropical Storm Earl has strengthened overnight as expected. The recon aircraft early this morning found a pressure of 989 mb and winds of up to 70 mph. Earl is nearing hurricane strength, but intensification remains gradual for now, as a coherent eye structure has not yet become established. If the storm’s inner core becomes robust later today, a period of more rapid intensification may occur, and Earl has the potential to be stronger than forecast at landfall. Right now the National Hurricane Center forecasts Earl to have 80 mph winds at landfall around 2am tomorrow morning. Hurricane warnings have been issued for the entire Belize coastline and the bay islands of Honduras, including Roatan.

    As usual the bloggers on dr. Masters are making a big something out of nothing.
    Their lives are not complete unless there’s a disaster on the way.

    No disrespect, but, it would be nice to see current information. Earl, after all, is gone, and everyone is keeping an eye on Invest 98L.

  • Jason Guinther says:

    And into the busy part of the Hurricane season we go. Hopefully most of these storms remain Tropical Storms or minimal Hurricanes but don t kid yourself, they can do quite a bit of damage also. I shall keep this thread ongoing and updated until the storm approaches final landfall in Mexico or Belize as this storm poses no threat to the U.S. mainland at this time.

    Thanks for this excellent article. One other thing is that most digital cameras arrive equipped with the zoom lens so that more or less of that scene to be included by simply ‘zooming’ in and out. Most of these changes in focusing length are generally reflected within the viewfinder and on huge display screen on the back of the specific camera.
