Tropical Storm Earl Forms in Atlantic Ocean
Tropical Storm Earl has formed in the central Atlantic Ocean, near the Leeward Islands. As a center of circulation has gradually become better defined over the last few days, pressure has fallen and winds have increased beyond 39mph to classify the system as a tropical storm.
Earl is expected to move west-northwestward at 10mph just north of the Leeward Islands through Saturday and then north of Puerto Rico on Sunday. Regardless of strengthening, heavy rain is possible. This system does not pose a threat to the Gulf of Mexico.
