TROPICAL STORM EARL - 2004

TROPICAL STORM EARL 2004

EARL REPORT:

AT SEA TROPICAL STORM EARL DISCUSSION NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE, NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER, MIAMI FL SUN AUG 15, 2004 EARL APPEARS WELL-ORGANIZED ON SATELLITE IMAGES...BUT THE HURRICANE HUNTERS REPORT THAT THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION IS NOT VERY WELL-DEFINED...AND IN FACT RECENT OBSERVATIONS FROM THE PLANE SUGGEST THAT THE CIRCULATION MAY NOT BE QUITE CLOSED OFF. THIS IS PROBABLY DUE TO THE VERY FAST FORWARD MOTION ...MORE SIGNIFICANT STRENGTHENING IS CERTAINLY POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF THE VERY FAVORABLE OCEANIC ENVIRONMENT. HOWEVER THERE IS LITTLE...IF ANY...SKILL IN PREDICTING SUCH EVENTS.
