Late Evening Look at the Tropics

Igor has been upgraded to a hurricane late tonight. The 75 mph hurricane is 1350 miles east of the island of St. Martin in the northern Leeward Islands. It is moving west at 17 mph. It is still expected to pass north of the Leeward Island ealry next week and should become a large and intense hurricane. By next weekend, it will be curving off the coast of the Northeast U.S., a few hundred miles east of Cape Code, sort of like Hurricane Earl.

The disturbance over the eastern Caribbean is a little less organized, but still has a decent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone over the next couple of days.

The disturbance that just moved off the African Coast is very close to already being a tropical depression and we could see advisories start shortly.
