Tropical Depression 3

Recommended Posts

96L has become Tropical Depression 3 near the Carolina coast and is forecast to reach hurricane strength before extra-tropical transition. 

This one will be entering the jet in the Atlantic so keep an eye on strength.

Open eye wall, should get an upgrade to Hurricane Chris at the next advisory. Please change thread title.

Chris is certainly comfy where he is. Barely moved all week!

The NHC map says TS, but the forecast advisory (2100z) refers to Hurricane Chris in the title.

Methinks it's been upgraded, but I'm not sure. Either way, the tip of Newfoundland takes the brunt of it.

EDIT: Confirmed. 5pm EDT discussion declares an upgrade to Hurricane status. Now lets go spin some fish!

Forecast to become a category 2 hurricane tomorrow before it starts to go extra-tropical.

970mb, 105mph.

Looks like it may have peaked from the latest discussion.

      NHC will issue advisories from 4pm.
       
      ..
       
      Still lacks significant convection but it has persisted over a fairly well defined center..
       

       
      Track is pretty clear cut with a likely eventual path somewhere west of the Azores..
       

       
      Strength guidance looks pretty straight forward too, likely to become a hurricane. 6z operational from GFS suggested something around a strong category 1, weak category 2.
