Update on the tropics and Long Island weather:
Nana became a hurricane and made landfall in Belize overnight with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph. It's now located over Belize with maximum sustained winds of 70 mph.
Tropical Depression Omar is encountering very strong wind shear, but it's still hanging on as a tropical depression, but it's expected to become a post-tropical remnant low tomorrow.
There are now 3 areas to watch in the eastern Atlantic, with the main tropical wave now being given a 70% chance of tropical development within the next 5 days. It's likely that by the end of next week we will have Paulette and Rene to track. It's too early to tell if there will be potential landfalls in the United States between around September 15th and 22nd.
