Category 3 Hurricane Irene tracks northwest through the Bahamas

Hurricane Irene remains a powerful category 3 this afternoon, with maximum sustained winds of 120 mph. Irene is moving northwest through the Bahamas at 12 mph, and its center has cleared the northern edge of Crooked Island. The next islands in the path of Irene are Rum Cay (population 80) and Cat Island (population 1700), which it will encounter later tonight. Irene will track northeast of Long Island (in the Bahamas) over the next 24 hours. George Town has been reporting wind gusts up to around 40 mph this afternoon, and wind speed will likely increase during the next 12 hours as Irene's center passes about 30-40 miles to their northeast. Long Island in the Bahamas will likely see category 1 winds, which begin at 74 mph. Shelters on New Providence and Grand Bahama are open and ready for business, and Grand Bahama International Airport will remain closed until Irene passes.

Irene continues to look well-organized on satellite, especially compared to yesterday afternoon. Since then, intense upward motion, and therefore strong thunderstorm activity, has encompassed the center on all sides, which has led to a well-defined eye. Throughout the morning, Irene's eye wall has shrunk, and a new eye wall could be developing, although it remains unclear at this point. If this is the case, it could lead to some temporary weakening of the hurricane, which would be good for the Bahamas. This afternoon, Irene's hurricane-force winds extend 50 miles from the center, and tropical storm-force winds extend up to 205 miles from the center. Earlier this morning, an Air Force Hurricane Hunter mission investigated Irene and a NOAA Gulfstream (Gonzo) is currently collecting data around the hurricane.

Track forecast for Irene
NOAA has continued dropsonde missions today, scouring the atmosphere for data as far north as the waters off of South Carolina. Every bit of upper-air data that the models can ingest will lead to better forecasts and decreased uncertainty. These missions are an investment that pay off. Irene will track through the central Bahamas today, the northwestern Bahamas on Thursday, and approach the Outer Banks of North Carolina on Friday. Beyond this there is a bit of divergence in the models. Both the GFDL and the HWRF are forecasting a landfall on Long Island, New York, and the ECMWF continues to suggest a landfall even further west than that. NOGAPS is still the eastern outlier, which misses the U.S. all together and makes landfall in Canada. Today the official track forecast from the National Hurricane Center agrees with the GFS forecast through Saturday morning, and then diverges ever so slightly to the west of that through Monday. It has become clear over the past 3 days that everyone on the East Coast from North Carolina to Maine should be prepared to feel impacts from Hurricane Irene.


Figure 2. Official track forecast provided by the National Hurricane Center.

Intensity forecast for Irene
Irene continues to be embedded in a large envelope of moisture, and wind shear is expected to remain low to moderate, 5 - 20 knots, for the next three days. With water temperatures very warm, 28 - 30°C, these conditions should allow for intensification to a category 4 hurricane (winds of 131 to 155 mph). The only reliable model that's not forecasting this intensification is the GFS, and this is likely due to its relatively course spatial resolution. The National Hurricane Center expects Irene to intensify to a category 4 tomorrow, with a decrease in intensity back to a category 3 on Friday.

Irene max winds went down, why? Is this going to continue?


My guess is eye wall replacement cycle.... looks like she is going to strengthen soon.

At a possible landfall yes, definitely in the conversation especially with 3 major models (GFDL/HWRF/Euro) consistently forecasting a very intense hurricane maintaining strength all the way to the NE US coast. However once the storm made it 50-100 miles inland and into central or W-ern MA it would most likely weaken to a Category 1 storm or tropical storm.

I really can't believe the models have actually SPREAD out with the latest run! Albeit not a huge spread but enough to cause even more uncertainty. They are having a hard time with that next trough I guess.


It is the influence of a mid latitude trough that is expected to move towards the Great Lakes region that is causing the spread at days 4 and 5. If the trough were to amplify and deepen then Irene would be forced on more of a due N-erly track up the Mid Atlantic coast and into the NJ/NYC area.

And if Irene happens to take a track a little further W of the NHC forecast without crossing significant land in NJ, DE, NY and CT then there is a possibility she may still be a Category 1 hurricane moving into your area.

Based on the uper level cloud pattern and the track of the cyclone, Irene is apparently feeling the pull of the upper level low over the eastern Gulf. She's easily moving at an angle that is 15 to 20 degrees left of track with no wobbles for last 4-5 hours or so. The trend is unlikely to continue in the "significantly" longer term, but Nassau will likely have a harder hit, maybe even an eye passage. She's definately west of track, around 24.4 N, 76.0 W now.

Yes that is possible. But a track like the 00z Euro would actually be a lot better for the NE since Irene will move over quite a bit of land in the mid Atlantic states before reaching the area and the wind damage will certainly be curtailed. The rainfall will still be a very serious concern no matter what the exact track is, and the storm is so large that all areas of the NE will see very gusty winds at the very least.

Absolutely, that is a guarantee at this point in the game. At least one area of the East coast will face the brunt of a very dangerous hurricane, with possibly the entire coast feeling serious effects. And you are right about the impacts in SE-ern Canada. They will be looking at a very large extratropical storm pounding far E-ern Quebec and New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and SW-ern Nova Scotia with a lot of rain and gusty tropical storm force winds.


Yup, we definitely don't want another Hazel in Canada. 81 lives were taken and 100 million dollars was done in damage (1 billion using today's dollars). Don't want to see the worst Hurricane disaster ever be repeated again.

Western MA should expect to receive tropical storm force winds with the current NHC track, and 4-6 inches of rain at least, possibly higher if Irene tracks directly over the area or slightly to the W.

Highly dependent on the eventual track she takes. A track similar to the latest Euro is good news for the northeast but bad news for NC and the mid Atlantic states. The current NHC track would be potentially catastrophic for NJ and NYC eastward, while a path further to the east would be very bad for RI, MA and ME.

A tad inside of the Outer Banks. Overall not much of the change for the ECMWF, it's been the western solution for several runs now. There would be minimal effects in New England according to this model, since the system would go over New Jersey and have a slight west component.

Also, BMC,

Keep in mind that the NHC forecast is not a line. You're still 3 days out and they admit that their forecast contains about 144 miles of error that far in advance. (Commonly referred to as the cone.)

NHC Forecast Errors

Therefore, the storm could completely miss you, staying out over the ocean with nothing more than a stiff breeze (granted, this appears UNLIKELY, as it's the eastern end of the envelope), or it could come directly over your house.

It's better to be prepared for the latter. Realistically, watches or warnings for your area will probably go up on Friday morning if they're still warranted.

By 48 hours out, the typical error in an NHC forecast is less than 100 miles and if your area is warned, you can pretty much assume that from this bull, you're gonna get the horns.

Hi bmrc...

Well, we're not experts so please watch your local NWS forecast for the latest information...

That said, the latest computer models seem to show sustained tropical storm force winds by early morning on Sunday.

As far as the worst case scenario? You could still get the eye-wall. The GFS currently has it going about 80 miles east of you as a weakening category two storm. (~100 mph)


Thanks, I have been watching Irene since she was an Invest but I don't have enough skill to interpret models on my own.

We are going to be as prepared as we can be. Food, water, batteries, candles etc. The only tropical storm I remember ever experiencing is Floyd! I didn't even lose power. I do not expect the same here this time...

Very true, obviously there is a lot of hype about this storm and rightly so because it is an extremely dangerous hurricane that is in line to affect tens of millions of people. Just listen to your trusted local meteorologists, the National Hurricane Center and the National Weather Service forecasts and warnings. You will get good and valuable information.
