Tropical Storm Nadine has been strengthening at a steady rate in the past 24 hours or so and is now close to hurricane strength, with winds around 65 MPH. Further strengthening is expected and Nadine could become a hurricane as early as tonight then strengthen some more and possibly peak close to CAT II strength by Friday. Good news is that it is not a threat to land, at least in the foreseeable future. I am not ruling out the possibility that the Azores Islands and ultimately western Europe may feel some impacts from Nadine's extratropical remnants past the 5-day time frame, but it is not a threat to land whatsoever in the short-term.

Thanks Ben, yup, a classical "fish storm", at least as far as the US is concerned.


But Azores Islands may see some direct impacts and if that happens--not a complete fish spinner. US...yeah, we can pretty much rule out any impacts over here.

Thanks Ben, I saw the Azores could see some impacts and I bring Nadine to a 100mph hurricane before weakening.


Yeah, we'll have to see, Nadine was struggling in the past 12 or so hours.
