Hurricane Gert continues to organize and strengthen this morning. The outflow pattern remains impressive, water temperatures are very warm, and the wind shear environment is light. Overnight the eye disappeared but I suspect we will see that show up again later today. Hurricane Gert is no threat to land though we will see it kick up the surf along our coast line over the next couple of days.

…GERT EXPECTED TO TURN TOWARD THE NORTHEAST LATER TODAY…

Elsewhere in the tropics there are two active tropical waves in the Eastern Atlantic and both actually look better defined this morning especially the one that is furthest east. Both are tracking westward. Upper air conditions remain conducive for development over the next several days.
