Named Storm: 'Felix'

Discussion in 'Tropical Systems' started by Pastor Gary, Sep 1, 2007.

  1. Named Storm: 'Felix'

    Initial Report - 01 September 2007, 06:00 Hrs USA CDT:

    Topical Storm Felix formed near Barbados overnight from a Tropical low pressure area. It is currently near the island of Grenada in the southeastern Caribbean Sea moving in a westerly direction. This storm will intensify and will initially take a track just south of the track that Hurricane Dean took recently.

    There are many potential variables regarding possible track direction changes. Persons in the central Caribbean islands should monitor the progress of this storm carefully.

    Our next update will be Sunday morning, September 02.

  2. HURRICANE FELIX SPECIAL UPDATE 19:30 Hrs USA CDT, 01 Sept 2007

    Tropical Storm Felix became Hurricane Felix over the past 2 hours. It is currently moving west at 17 miles per hour and is located 390 miles east of Aruba.

    This storm will track near the same route taken by Hurricane Dean, but once it passes over the Yucatan Peninsula by September 5-6, it may start to take a more northerly track.

    Persons in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands should be alert for changing conditions. Persons along the Gulf Coast of the US should monitor this storm carefully.

    We will post updates as needed.

  4. HURRICANE FELIX UPDATE, 13:30 Hrs USA-CDT, Sept. 02, 2007

    Hurricane Felix is building in intensity very quickly and is now a MAJOR HURRICANE at Category 3. Top sustained winds are hovering around 130 MPH with gusting to over 150 MPH.

    The track is now west northwest and the storm will continue to strengthen.

    SOME computer models are showing a possible jog to the north over the next several days. Therefore, persons along the Gulf Coast of the US should be monitoring this storm carefully. These north component computer models are in the minority at this time, but are picking up some weather interactions that could possibly influence the storm tracking in a few days.

    Additional Updates will be posted as conditions warrant.

  5. HURRICANE FELIX UPDATE- 05:30 Hrs USA-CDT, 03 September 2007

    Hurricane Felix is now rated as a catastrophic storm and has reached Category 5. It is currently located 240 miles south-southeast of Kingston, Jamaica moving generally westerly at 20 MPH. The central core winds were monitored by Hurricane Hunter Aircraft during their most recent fly-through at over 165 MPH with gusts near the eyewall at close to 190 MPH. With a storm this compact, but intense, some fluctuations in strength are anticipated over the next 36 hours.

    This stom will track just off the coast of Nicaragua and enter the Yucatan Penninsula near Belize. It will cross the Penninsula and enter the southern Gulf of Mexico late this week.

    Most computer models are indicating an eastern Mexico landfall near where Hurricane Dean came ashore, but it is much too early to predict an exact area. Since a slight chance of a northerly move is still possible, persons from the Louisiana/Texas border southward along the Texas Gulf Coast should monitor this storm carefully.

    Updates will be posted as necessary.

  6. HURRICANE FELIX UPDATE 16:30 Hrs CDT-USA, 02 SEPT 2007

    Hurricane Felix has been downgraded to a Cat 4 storm with maximum sustained winds at just over 150 MPH. The storm is moving almost due west at 20 MPH and will be making a Central America landfall near the Nicaragua - Honduras border early Tuesday September 03. The storm will then be downgraded as it looses it's water energy source, but it will impact Central America with heavy rainfall, flooding, extremely high winds and some tornadic activity.

    The storm's track is losing it's northerly component influence and there is little chance that it will make any great impact on the Texas Coast (at this time).

    Our next update will be posted as needed.

  7. HURRICANE FELIX UPDATE 04 September 2007 - 15:00 Hrs CDT-USA

    Hurricane Felix came ashore near the Nicaragua - Honduras border this morning as a Catagory 5 Hurricane with winds at 165 MPH +. This is only the second time in modern weather history that two Cat 5 storms have made landfall in the same season.

    Felix continues to dump huge amounts of rain in the mountainous Central American region and continues to be a severe flood threat.

    The track of Felix will continue across Central America and it will be loosing strength each hour. It is currently a weak Category 2. Since this storm has little chance of strengthening or making a northward turn, this will be our final Felix update unless an unforseen event changes the situation.

    There are two additional tropical waves which we are monitoring closely for development and will post as these conditions warrant in additional "Named Storm..." postings. For additional official information, please use the link below.
