Tropical Storm Fiona, heading for the Leeward Islands on Friday evening with winds of 50 mph, will develop into a hurricane in the coming days, the US National Hurricane Center said. Although the storm is currently pounding Guadeloupe , extreme wind shear pushed Fiona’s powerful thunderstorms to its eastern side, meaning the island chain saw almost no rain, even though Fiona’s eye is just 20 miles from the coast. Tropical storm warnings have been issued for nations in the Leeward Islands and tropical storm watches have been issued for Dominica. and parts of the Dominican Republic. Along with its damaging winds, Fiona could bring 12 to 16 inches of rain, as well as dangerous storm surge, causing coastal and inland flooding. After passing through the islands, Fiona is expected to head west and then hold on north to the Bahamas, where it will continue to strengthen offshore and possibly reach hurricane strength by the end of the day. next week. This stage is marked by sustained winds of 75 mph. Where it goes from there is up for debate, though. Some computer models show it moving towards Florida, while others see it continuing to hang on north and then east and out to sea. wind. Same principle here. In this case, if Fiona lifts the veils in the form of stronger/higher thunderstorms, she is pushed north,” he explained. “Notice the chord here. All greens represent weaker scenarios – these are Gulf/Caribbean seedlings if Fiona continues to struggle. If it strengthens, it curves north and then strengthens. In the eyewall, where the hurricane’s strongest and most intense storms are found, clouds can reach 50,000 feet high — well into Earth’s stratosphere.

September is the peak of Atlantic hurricane season, which has been noticeably quieter than normal. Recent years have seen an increase in both the number and intensity of tropical cyclones in the region, a phenomenon linked to the influence of global warming.

Tropical Storm Fiona, heading for the Leeward Islands on Friday evening with winds of 50 mph, will become a hurricane in the coming days, in the United States National Hurricane Center said.

Although the storm is currently rolling into Guadeloupe, extreme wind shear has pushed Fiona’s powerful thunderstorms to its eastern side, meaning the island chain has seen almost no rain, even though the Fiona’s eye is just 20 miles from the coast.

Tropical storm warnings have been issued for the Leeward Islands nations, and tropical storm watches have been issued for Dominica and parts of the Dominican Republic. Along with its damaging winds, Fiona could bring 12 to 16 inches of rain, as well as dangerous storm surge, causing coastal and inland flooding.

After crossing the islands, Fiona is expected to head west and then hold on north to the Bahamas, where she will continue to strengthen offshore and possibly reach hurricane strength by next week. . This stage is marked by sustained winds of 75 mph.

Where it goes from there is up for debate, though. Some computer models show it moving towards Florida, while others have it continuing to move north, then east and out to sea.

“Winds at low and mid levels are from the east. High aloft, out of the south. As Fiona gets stronger / thunderstorms grow they reach more southerly winds aloft / are pushed towards the north,” meteorologist Matthew Cappucci tweeted on Friday.

“Imagine a sailboat hoisting its sails and suddenly ‘feeling’ the breath of the wind. Same principle here. In this case, if Fiona lifts the veils in the form of stronger/higher thunderstorms, she is pushed north,” he explained.

“Notice the deal here. All the greens represent weaker scenarios – it’s the Gulf/Caribbean seedlings if Fiona continues to struggle. If it strengthens, it curves north and then strengthens.

In the eyewall, where the hurricane’s strongest and most intense storms are found, clouds can reach 50,000 feet high – well into Earth’s stratosphere.
