Tropical Storm Elsa Stronger As It Heads To Caribbean

Tropics

Friday July 2 2021

The fifth named storm of the Atlantic season is the most potent to date.  Tropical Storm Elsa is in the western Atlantic Ocean this morning and heading to the Lesser Antilles Islands, with a long range track to the west side of Florida next week.

Tropical Storm Warnings and Hurricane Watches have been issued along the path.

This is a very quick mover, which may help play a role in its impact. 

Large and Fast

The maximum sustained winds are up to 60 mph, and tropical storm force winds extend 140 miles from the center. The storm is racing to the west at 28 mph, which is rare for a tropical system at such a low latitude this early in the season.

Sunshine State Of Mind

 

Embracing my wife’s mantra of Sunshine State of Mind.

This was designed by Shannon Berk and we will be wearing it through spring and to the beach.

Double Benefit: Proceeds will be split between our nonprofit Just In Power Kids and the development of my new weather website. That has been scheduled to be ready to launch in May.
