Edouard Midday Monday

Tropical Storm Edouard appears to be forming an eyewall based on midday satellite pictures. As of 11:00am EDT Monday the storm was 265 miles east of Galveston, Texas and moving west at 8 mph. Maximum sustained winds are 45mph.

Edouard is forecast to make landfall along the north Texas Gulf coast sometime Tuesday morning as a strong tropical storm with winds close to hurricane strength. Because of the east to west path of the storm, tropical storm force winds may be experienced along the Louisiana coast as the storm strengthens.

The midday NOAA satellite picture below details the apparent eyewall development and shows the range of possibilities in the westward track of the storm.

It is evident that the barrier island city of Galveston has a high chance of being affected by this storm. For up to the minute information on Edouard’s progress go to our Hurricane Tracker at http://www.wbaltv.com/hurricanes/index.html
