Tropics Outlook 9-16-2014

Edouard becomes 2014's first major hurricane. No threat to US.
MONROE / EL DORADO -- For a brief time late Tuesday morning, Hurricane Edouard intensified to category 3 strength with max winds of about 115 mph. That makes Edouard the first major (category 3 or higher) hurricane in the Atlantic Basin since 2012's Hurricane Sandy (which you may remember striking the NE coast). Edouard is still forecast to continue moving northeast, bringing no threat to the US.

There are no significant tropical threats to the Gulf Coast for the next five days. Remember, hurricane season does not end until November 30th.
