Tropical Storm Maria intensifies may become Hurricane Maria

Tropical Storm Maria intensifies may become Hurricane Maria

There are no new developments to report in the Caribbean today. However, in the Northern Atlantic Tropical Storm Maria has been quickly intensifying. It is expected to become a Hurricane early today (16), albeit a short-lived one.

Maria is forecasted to keep on a northeastern track, drenching Bermuda with heavy rains and tropical storm force winds. By the end of today, Hurricane Maria is expected to downgrade to a tropical storm before New England is affected with very heavy rainfall. The track for Maria has been updated to show that it will more likely continue on a northeasterly track before shifting to the northwest and hitting Greenland. This is because Maria is expected to have roughly 24 hours left in warm water before it crosses the north wall of the Gulf Stream and enters into a high shear environment.
