Today's update discusses TS Irene which is located east of Puerto Rico as a 50 MPH tropical storm. Irene is slowly strengthening over the last few hours and now has a central pressure of 999MB indicating that the wind speeds should start to increase as well over the next several hours. Puerto Rico should be prepared to experience possible hurricane conditions over the next 24 to 36 hours as Irene's center moves over the island. Irene should continue in a west northwest direction over the next couple of days before a weakness or trough starts her turning more northwestward and eventually to the north impacting the SE U.S. All interests from Florida to North Carolina should monitor the progress of this potentially dangerous storm!! Thanks for stopping by!!!
