Tropical Storm Gaston To Strengthen Into A Hurricane
Right on the heels of tropical invest 99L
Yesterday Florida dodged a bullet known as “tropical invest 99L” – the tropical depression that could have been Tropical Storm Hermine but ultimately dissipated. Right on the heels of this comes news that Tropical Storm Gaston is anticipated to strengthen into a hurricane by Saturday. Satellite images show clear, circularly-defined cloud formations and tropical-storm-force winds extending up to 150 miles from the center. Despite this, the National Hurricane Center has not yet issued any advisories and currently predicts that Gaston will lose speed over the next few days while its trajectory shifts to the north-northwest.
