Quick 4 AM update on the tropics and Long Island weather:
I have included the latest images below (before the 5 AM advisories come out). I mentioned previously that I didn't think Beta would become a hurricane, and now the National Hurricane Center is not forecasting Beta to increase from its current 60 mph intensity.
There is a small mesovortex off the east coast of Florida. This is from the NHC: A small low pressure system is located near a frontal boundary, just off the eastern coast of central Florida. The low is producing a small area of thunderstorms near the coast, and recent buoy and satellite-derived wind data indicate that gale-force winds are occuring in the area. The low is expected to move inland over Florida later this morning, and significant development is not anticipated. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.
As previously discussed, Hurricane Teddy will pass east of Bermuda and transition into a large and powerful extratropical storm as it heads towards eastern Nova Scotia, and it will produce a huge area of very large waves with some possibly approaching 100 feet!
High surf, beach erosion, and beach flooding are likely tomorrow into Tuesday. There will be a high rip current risk through at least Tuesday.
