There is a lot of intense interest out there in watching TS Noel to see if this disorganized system turns into a Hurricane when it hits the warmer waters of the Gulf Stream. Click on the image for an animated version.
Then, place your bets.
The image is from my company, IntelliWeather, and updates every half hour.
UPDATE: Noel did in fact become a hurricane, and now has 80 mph sustained winds, but it appears to be headed out to sea, and into cooler waters where it will likely dissipate.
from NHC advisory 22: …HURRICANE NOEL EXPECTED TO BECOME A LARGE AND POWERFUL EXTRATROPICAL STORM OVER THE OPEN ATLANTIC ON FRIDAY… NOEL IS MOVING TOWARD THE NORTH-NORTHEAST NEAR 20 MPH…32 KM/HR…AND THIS MOTION IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS.
