Humberto is still strengthening as it heads out into the Atlantic and is expected to become a major hurricane by tomorrow with winds exceeding 110 mph.
I97 is looking healthy this morning on radar. The disturbance has some strong storms building, and it’s and getting its spin on, so it has the building blocks to strengthen. I assume it will be named shortly, and that name will be “Imelda”. It’s Spanish/Italian for Warrior Woman. Yup. Straight up Warrior Woman. Terrible sound, but super cool meaning.
Again, it’s all about timing, and nothing’s official this far out.
Oh, and still expecting that wave off Africa next week that could be a gamer. Blah…
