Emily Tuesday Afternoon

Tropical Storm Emily is churning in the Caribbean Sea just south of the Virgin Islands.

Emily appears a bit more organized than it has in the past couple of day but remains a marginal storm with 45 mph winds.

With a westerly movement of 12 mph Emily will be moving through an environment that is not really conducive to strengthening. Various computer models forecast a variety of possible tracks for the storm and some of those models indicate that the storm may be short lived.

One possible roadblock for Emily as a well organized tropical system may be the mountains of the island of Hispaniola.

The official forecast track for Emily as of Tuesday afternoon is shown below.

This forecast keeps Emily as a tropical storm through early Sunday but indicates that winds could reach 70 mph once the storm clears the Bahamas.
