Leslie brushing Bermuda, heading for Newfoundland

It's a wet, windy day on Bermuda today, where Tropical Storm Leslie is bringing high winds and heavy rain as the storm's core passes 120 miles (200 km) east of the island. At the Saint David's weather station on the east end of the island, Leslie brought sustained winds of 39 mph, gusting to 54 mph, at 12:30 pm AST today. Bermuda radar shows a large area of heavy rain from Leslie is over the island, and these rains will continue through most of the afternoon, and the Bermuda airport is closed until 4 pm AST. Satellite loops show that Leslie is a large storm with a huge eye 60 miles (100 km) in diameter, but the storm does not have an eyewall.

Forecast for Leslie
As Leslie continues to move north over warmer water, the storm should be able to build an eyewall and become a Category 1 hurricane. The strong trough of low pressure pulling Leslie to the north will bring Leslie very close to Newfoundland, Canada by Tuesday. At that time, Leslie should be weakening due to cooler waters and increased wind shear, and is likely to be a tropical storm. Heavy rain will be the main threat to Newfoundland. The latest 11 am EDT NHC wind probability forecast calls for a 36% chance that Leslie will be a Category 1 or stronger hurricane Tuesday morning at 8 am EDT, when the storm will be near Newfoundland. Even if the core of Leslie misses Newfoundland, the island will still likely experience tropical storm-force winds, since 39+ mph winds are expected to extend outward from its center 160 miles to its northwest on Tuesday. Large swells from Leslie continue to pound the entire Eastern Seaboard, and are creating beach erosion and dangerous rip currents.

Hurricane Michael weakens to Category 1
Hurricane Michael has weakened to a Category 1 storm with 90 mph winds, out over the open mid-Atlantic Ocean. Satellite loops show that Michael is still an impressive storm with a well-developed eye. None of the models show that Michael will threaten any land areas during the coming five days, and Michael will likely die at sea over cold waters east of Newfoundland in 3 - 4 days.

91L off the coast of Africa
A tropical wave that emerged off the coast of Africa on Friday (Invest 91L) is 250 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands, and is headed west-northwest at 10 - 15 mph. The disturbance is large with plenty of spin, but has limited heavy thunderstorm activity due to dry air. Most of the reliable computer models are predicting that 91L will develop into a tropical depression by Wednesday. In their 8 am EDT Tropical Weather Outlook, NHC gave 91L a 40% chance of developing into a tropical depression by Tuesday morning. Our two most reliable models, the GFS and ECMWF, predict that 91L will pass at least 500 miles to the northeast of the Lesser Antilles Islands late this week, on a track that would likely keep this storm far out at sea away from any land areas.

Could this be something??

Looking at it on the Wundermap, it appears to be a weak tropical wave between Honduras and Cuba. Doesn't look too impressive, but there is a surface low emerging from Mexico into the BOC which might bear watching.

(1) AN AREA OF CONVECTION HAS PERSISTED NEAR 7.0N 137.0E,
APPROXIMATELY 150 NM EAST OF PALAU. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS A LARGE AREA OF PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION OVER THE
WESTERN SEMI-CIRCLE OF A DEVELOPING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC). A 091622Z AMSU IMAGE SHOWS FORMATIVE CONVECTIVE BANDING
WRAPPING INTO A defined LLCC AND A 091234Z ASCAT IMAGE DEPICTS A
DEFINED CIRCULATION WITH 10-15 KNOT WINDS. RECENT SURFACE
OBSERVATIONS FROM PALAU INDICATE STRENGTHENING WEST-NORTHWESTERLY
FLOW AT 10-15 KNOTS SUSTAINED, SLP NEAR 1007.5MB AND A 24-HOUR SLP
DECREASE OF 1 MB, INDICATIVE OF THE SYSTEM'S IMPROVED ORGANIZATION
OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. THE TOTAL PRECIPITABLE WATER IMAGERY SHOWS A
BROAD AREA OF DEEP MOISTURE WITH A SURGE OF DEEP MOISTURE ASSOCIATED
WITH A WESTERLY WIND BURST. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES A
MARGINALLY-FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH MODERATE TO STRONG VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR (20-30 KNOTS) OFFSET BY STRONG DIFFLUENT, EASTERLY FLOW.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 12 TO 18 KNOTS.
MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1006 MB. VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO DECREASE AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS POLEWARD
OVER THE NEXT 1-2 DAYS. BASED ON THE IMPROVED ORGANIZATION YET
MARGINAL UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT
OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS MEDIUM.

That's the giant new invest in the West Pac I mentioned earlier.

On June 1st, if someone suggested that by September 10th we'd have 13-7-1 with TS Nadine about to develop they'd be ridiculed on the blog for such an outrageous suggestion.

Fair to say this season far exceeded everyone's expectations and even if we don't get to see another Invest for the rest of the year, I won't change my opinion of 2012 so far.

All the weak storms in the MDR and all the strong ones in the sub-tropics.When will this madness end?.Chris becoming a hurricane that far north back in June should have been a sign what conditions were going to be like up there.We need a storm like Igor to track through the MDR again.

Doesn't look like Leslie will come within Fujiwhara-distance (~900miles or ~1450kilometres) of Michael: Leslie's been moving too fast, and Michael's been moving too slow.
But they aren't so far apart that future interaction is impossible, yet. And because a Fujiwhara would affect both storms' paths...
Derived from the NHC's 9Sept12pmGMT ATCF data for TropicalStormLeslie and for HurricaneMichael
BHB-BarHarbor :: CWRW-FourchuHead :: YYT-St.John's :: YMH-Mary'sHarbour
All times in GMT
8Sept.06pm: TS.Leslie had been 1238miles(1992kilometres)West of H.Michael
9Sept.12am: TS.Leslie had been1222miles(1966kilometres)West of H.Michael
9Sept.06am: TS.Leslie had been 1197miles(1926kilometres)West of H.Michael
9Sept.12pm: TS.Leslie had been 1151miles(1853kilometres)West of H.Michael
9Sept.06pm: TS.Leslie was 1090miles(1754kilometres)West of H.Michael

A closure rate of 148miles(238kilometres) per day isn't sufficient to close the gap before the distance between the two starts increasing again. But if Leslie slows down while Michael speeds up...

Ginger had 111, but that was back in 1971. A hurricane from 1938 would have had 112, and the longest ever, Hurricane/Typhoon John, had 120 advisories.
