3 Tropical Storms in the Atlantic… Thursday Eve Update – 10pm #alwx @wvua23


Good Thursday night! The tropics are very active across the Atlantic basin, which isn’t a shock considering we’re at the peak of the season. Typically, tropical action remains active through mid October before gradually decreasing a bit.

Tropical Storm Karl just developed this evening in the east Atlantic and is moving west. Karl has winds at 45mph, but wind shear and nearby dry air should prevent rapid development over the next few days. Karl is a long way from land, but it is highly in question whether Karl can impact the US or turn out to sea. Given the current location, typically storms in that position re-curve into the open Atlantic. We’ll watch carefully.

Tropical Storm Julia with winds at 40mph is moving east southeast off the Georgia and South Carolina coastline. Julia should weaken over the next few days, as wind shear really increases in that area.

Tropical Storm Ian with winds at 50mph, is quickly moving northeast into the open Atlantic. Ian will not impact the US. The storm is moving northeast at an incredible speed of 53mph.
