Emily Tropical Storm Tracking

Emily Tropical Storm Tracking, Tropical Storm Emily is beating a path through the Caribbean, but forecasters warned the storm could continue on his way to the southern Atlantic coast this weekend, forecasters say Emily here probably bring nothing but big waves off the coast of Jersey.
The fifth named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, Emily is 180 miles southeast of the Dominican Republic, with sustained winds of 50 mph in the area, according to the National Weather Service.
The storm was expected to arrive in the Dominican Republic and Haiti today, possibly dumping up to 10 inches of rain on the island of Spanish, which is composed of the two countries. But Emily weakens as it travels northwest through the mountainous island to Florida, forecasters say.
When he emerges south of the Bahamas Thursday, the storm could intensify as the north slopes, according to the prediction models. The current projection cone shows a possible way to Atlantic coast of Florida starting Friday, with the possibility of an upgrade to a low-level hurricane off the Carolinas on Monday.
However, the latest report form the National Weather Service says there is still “uncertainty” in the model beyond Friday.
As a result, it is difficult to know what affect the storm in New Jersey.
“Emily is very far away right now,” said meteorologist Bob Lewd season with Mount Holly National Weather Service, and you cannot say for sure which way to take. But the storm is likely to recurve somewhere north of the Bahamas, he said, so it moves north, “everything would be a storm at sea.”
This could make surfers happy in Jersey next week, but swimmers should be careful informal.
With the storms at sea, “will achieve greater long-period waves, so will start the height of the waves, and will also increase the risk of rip currents,” said nonsense.
As wind and rain, he said, “If at sea, we will not see anything.”
