Aah Jim’s Don’t Panic Weather Update for 9-22-19 at 8am

Aah Jim is a local coastal storm expert in disaster recovery who researches the hurricanes and gives no nonsense reporting about them in plain language. Read his prior updates in links below for important info about how hurricanes work.  This morning he writes: This is the Sept 22 update from the Don’t Panic Weather Service. As we reported Jerry is heading north and out of harms way and another tropical storm Karen is following north in Jerry’s path. It is expected to run right across puerto rico but never build its winds to hurricane strength. In fact it is expected to barely impact puerto rico at this point. From there Karen heads north. Some models suggest Karen might make a strong left turn and head for Florida but at such a high latitude that this is unlikely. Once as far north as central Florida, most Atlantic storms want to head north or north east, not west which was why we doubted a projected track of Dorian hitting central Florida from almost due east of it. There is a storm off Africa we are watching that will likely build to hurricane strength and head west to the Caribbean. There are no projected paths at this point, but it is very common for hurricanes to follow similar paths to the preceding one which would have the new storm head west then sharply north, heading out into the mid Atlantic. In the coming month, the storms to watch will likely focus more on the Gulf of Mexico.
