Arlene

Post by Caribbean Traveler » Thu Apr 20, 2017 4:36 pm

Thursday Evening Update

Arlene forms in the open Atlantic

The Weather Situation
Arlene is only the second tropical storm to form during April during the satellite era. These storms would be very hard to detect before that time. Arlene is only a curiosity and poses no threat.

Current Tropical Weather
As of 5 PM EDT Tropical Storm Arlene was centered at 37.7 N / 42.0 W or 815 miles west of the Azores. It was moving WNW at 25 mph. Top sustained winds are estimated at 45 mph. Pressure was estimated at 993 mb.

Tropical Weather Forecast:
Arlene is not expected to last long. It is not a threat to land in the middle of the north Atlantic ocean.

Arlene is post tropical as of 11 am AST. It was over water that was in the 60s. It most likely was never tropical but a subtropical storm.
