Will devote this hurricane season to provide up-to-the-minute, basic information when a tropical system is threatening land. Both basins included.

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.
