Atlantic Tropical Daily Planner 092017

Hurricane Maria has produced devastating category 5 strength winds across the Virgin Islands over the past several hours and is currently in the process of making landfall over Puerto Rico as a category 4. Potentially catastrophic conditions will occur across the region through the morning. Maria will then curve to the north into the Western Atlantic while gradually weakening over the next five days and will produce extreme winds across portions of the Dominican Republic and the far eastern Bahamas. Tropical Storm Jose is in the process of weakening and becoming a post-tropical cyclone over the offshore waters of the Northeast. Tropical storm conditions will spread over portions of Long Island into Cape Cod on Wednesday. The remnants of Lee has become more organized overnight as the low pressure tracks northward over the open Atlantic. Further organization of convection over the core will allow for the regeneration of Tropical Storm Lee. There is now a moderate chance of this occurring and Significant Tropical Disturbance Advisories have been initiated.
