Ernesto enters the BOC

By: wxchaser97 , 6:09 AM GMT on August 09, 2012

TS Ernesto has weakened from being over land as he used to be a hurricane. He came ashore in Costa Maya, Mx with officially 85mph winds and 980mb pressure. I say officially as storm chasers recorded a lower pressure and higher winds and it was likely that Ernesto was a low-end cat2 hurricane at landfall. Not much has came out of Mexico which is so far good. Ernesto never lost his shape and is quickly re-strengthening. As of the 2am advisory he had 70mph winds, 993mb pressure, and is moving W @ 16mph. Convection is increasing and he will remain over water for 12ish more hours and should become a hurricane. Hurricane/ TS warnings are up and anyone in his path should expect hurricane conditions in the next 12-24 hours and should follow all warnings. I think an 80mph hurricane will make landfall between Veracruz and Coatzacoalcos. Once he makes landfall he will dissipate rapidly but still pose a rain threat. I'll have a full Wxchaser97 tropical update tomorrow afternoon, we may have a TD by then and an interesting wave over Africa. I will also have a tropical graphic forecast out tomorrow afternoon and it will be included in this blog.
