It is going to be an active two weeks. First, I see the remnants of Isaac moving back into the Gulf and possibly affecting Florida.
As I have been mentioning, the models on Leslie would be shifting more to the West. She will move very slowly to the North the high pressure to her Northeast will likely move her a little more to the NW. I will she will be a formidable storm in size and strength this week. There is no doubt she will have a strong impact on Bermuda and now very possibly the North East Coast of the US. She could easily become a Category 3 or higher. Either way, no one in Bermuda, the Northeast US, or Eastern Canada should let their guard down yet. She will be a large storm with tremendous wave impacts.
Quite a change from yesterday. The current EMCWF has Leslie quite close to the NE US coast before a possible strike on Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.
However, there are two other systems to be watched. The is a strong wave off the coast of Africa that could also move towards the East coast of the US in the next week. And there are hints of still another which appear to stay on a much more Southerly track and be near the Antilles in the next two weeks.
