Disturbance in the southern Atlantic may become a tropical storm

Disturbance in the southern Atlantic may become a tropical storm

Showers and storms associated with this disturbance have become better organized but it is lacking a well-defined low-level center of circulation.

An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the first wave this afternoon if necessary.

Regardless of development, this system is expected to bring locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds to portions of the Lesser Antilles beginning late Tuesday.

The system is expected to run into less favorable upper-level winds after Wednesday, which could keep it from intensifying any more.

The U.S National Hurricane Center reports that the storm's maximum sustained winds are at 145 miles per hour (230 kph).

The hurricane center said some gradual development will be possible with this wave while it moves to the west-northwest or northwest over the Atlantic.

On July 13 at 1:30 p.m. EDT, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Terra satellite captured a close-up visible-light image of Hurricane Fernanda as it continued moving west through the Eastern Pacific Ocean.

This area is about 2,400 miles from Myrtle Beach and poses no threat to land at this time.
