"From weeks of relative and unusual quiet to uh oh!!!!" So writes Dave at StormCarbib.com.
He is keeping a close eye on Tropical Storm, soon to be Hurricane, Earl.
The site has an interesting tool to let you see how close a storm will come to wherever you are. As of Friday morning, the prediction was that Earl will pass 260 miles northeast of the island early Tuesday morning.
"At this point, all bets are off until it organizes better," cautions Dave. "The quicker it organizes, the quicker it should curve. 500 miles isn't much room for error so don't take that for granted." Dave continues, "Behind … Earl is several more waves on the African continent and it looks like the train is ready to run at full speed for a while."
The tracking map on the right is via WeatherUnderground.com. It updates the map for Earl daily at 5am, 11am, and 5 pm.
