The Atlantic basin is still relatively busy with Hurricane Nadine a potential threat to the Azores Islands and a weak tropical disturbance (92L) capable of developing down the road. What, where and who should take action from these 2 systems will be covered this blog post.

Hurricane Nadine
Nadine has strengthened into a category one hurricane overnight and now has winds at around 80 MPH. Movement is to the east at 17 MPH and a northeastern turn should occur by Monday as Nadine heads for cooler waters but still remains on a path that could bring some impacts to the Azores Islands. Fortunately, it's not a major threat to anyone at this time but the Azores Islands could be affected by some increased rain and wind as the latest forecast tracks makes Nadine brush by the Azores Islands as a tropical storm by mid-next week. Of course there's a lot of time to determine exactly what impacts the Azores may see but it's wise to keep an eye on Nadine for all interests in the Azores Islands. No other land masses seem to be threatened by Nadine in the foreseeable future.

Invest 92L
This disturbance's rather weak, disorganized and not a major immediate threat to land right now--it is getting close to the Windward Islands and folks there may see some increased locally heavy rainfall as early as tomorrow but not a huge deal, really, maybe some minor flooding in low-lying areas...it should remain weak as it enters the Caribbean but later down the road--perhaps into this upcoming week--conditions could become very favorable for development and that's when more of a population should be paying attention to this area of potential development. TD/TS formation in the short-term doesn't seem likely, but I do think we might see one form beyond the 2-day time frame and possibly something stronger. All Caribbean islands have a chance to be affected--where exactly it goes and how strong it gets, does it affect the Lower 48, we should get a better picture of the outcomes later on--for now, just a weak area of potential to casually monitor for any major development. The NHC gives this a 20% chance of TC formation by Monday evening.

Quoting originalLT:
Thanks Ben, yeah, that 92L could be a "sneaky" one. As you say, we'll have to keep tabs on it down the road. I will be away for almost 3 days. My wife and I are driving up to the White Mountains in New Hampshire early on Sunday morning, coming back late Tues. Night. We are staying at a place called the Spaulding Inn, in Whitefield NH. That place has been featured on the TV show, "Ghost Hunters"! I'll let you know if I see any! I've got my trusty camera with me so I'll be ready.Then on Monday we'll go in our car up Mt. Washington(weather permitting). I was there twice before, many years ago. As a weather enthusiest, I would encourage you to make that clime, at least once in your life. Some people hike it, but not me, we'll drive up,(it will be our second drive to the top) the other time we went we took the Cog Railway to the top. Checking out the observatory up on the summit is fun. Take care, LT


Enjoy it up there, heard it's nice.
