Ingrid, 9th Named Storm of 2007


Late Thursday evening a NOAA hurricane hunter plane found just enough wind and circulation in the tropical depression 840 miles east of the Caribbean to upgrade the depression to tropical storm status. With maximum sustained winds of just 40 mph it’s really just a cluster of strong thunderstorms, but 40 is the magic number when naming storms so it’s “Hello Ingrid!” The official forecast from the National Hurricane Center keeps Ingrid as a fairly weak tropical storm due to some wind shear in the area preventing further strengthening. The expected track takes Ingrid west/northwest to a position north of the Virgin Islands early next week.
