Tropical Storm Maria 2011
September 7, 2011 by USA Post
Tropical Storm Maria 2011, Tropical Storm Marie has formed in the Atlantic, becoming the system of 13 names of the 2011 season. The storm is not likely to increase explosive strength, but is likely to eventually threaten the U.S. East Coast, forecasters say.
In addition, another system is showing signs of organization in the Gulf of Mexico that could become a tropical depression in the coming days and perhaps even threaten the U.S. But for now, as Hurricane weakens and Katia prepares to move away from the U.S. East Coast Tropical storm Maria made headlines in the last named storm.
“We have the name of the 13 storm season and is in an environment that is conducive to the strengthening of explosives,” said Dennis Feltgen, a spokesman for the National Hurricane Center, Bloomberg. “In fact, we as a tropical storm until the end of the forecast period of five days.”
Mary is expected to pass north of Puerto Rico on September 11th as a tropical storm. Then, the models show that is likely to impact the U.S. perhaps steeped in Florida.
Moreover, Katia, currently a Category 1 storm, has moved about 320 miles southwest of Bermuda, where a tropical storm warning is in effect. Katia is expected to move north past Bermuda, and turn north and east before such an impact in the UK and Ireland next week.
The other developing countries, the system still unnamed, developing in the Gulf of Mexico has similarities with Lee tropical storm that soaked the U.S. in the last week and caused fires in Texas with winds rose amid drought conditions. That the development of the system could move east on the weekend and next week, threatens U.S. about the same time Mary moved in.
Between that system and tropical storm Maria, U.S. could obtain a single or double dose of trouble in mid-September.
“One or both of the systems have a window of opportunity to reach the U.S. This,” said Accuweather hurricane and tropical weather Coordinator Dan Kottlowski in a report on the website of the weather service.
The risk of both storms possibly affecting the U.S. at a time after the torrential rains of Hurricane and Tropical Storm Irene Lee poses risk of further flooding in areas saturated. Both systems could cause direct impacts on the U.S., making significant rainmakers, forecasters say.
