Hurricane Earl Aims For Belize
Before we address Earl, our local weather remains great with clear skies for tonight and a bright and sunny Thursday and Friday ahead. We should see temperatures comfortably cool tonight. Lows will be in the mid to upper 50s inland areas and over parts of Suffolk County and Interior Connecticut..while coastal and urban areas will be in the lower 60s. Highs Thursday with sunshine will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s and in the 80s on Friday.Its nice an dry and the satellite loop and there is nothing of consequence on the radar.
HURRICANE EARL CONTINUES TO STRENGTHEN AS IT HEADS FOR BELIZE TONIGHT
Hurricane Earl Advisory
Earl still has time to strengthen further and has become a rather large cyclone with gales out over 140 miles from the center. Conditions remain favorable for further strengthening until landfall in the early morning hours on Thursday. There is a chance this could reach Category 2 status given the very low wind shear conditions aloft and the super warm water temperatures in that part of the Caribbean.

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Earl was located near latitude 17.1 North, longitude 86.0 West. Earl is moving toward the west near 14 mph (22 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue with some decrease in forward speed during the next 48 hours. On the forecast track, the core of Earl will continue to pass near the Honduras Bay Islands during the next few hours, and then make landfall in Belize tonight or early Thursday. Maximum sustained winds remain near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts, however, Earl is expected to be a hurricane by the time it reaches Belize. Weakening is expected after the center of Earl moves inland. Earl has become a large cyclone, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km) primarily to the northeast of the center. The estimated minimum central pressure is 990 mb (29.24 inches).
