STORMTRACKER 33 —
Tropical Storm Emily is no any better organized than from this morning. Satellite pictures clearly show the center of circulation is far west of where most of the rain and storms are concentrated. When this is seen strengthening is not expected as Emily moves west at 12mph. The latest computer forecast models show that the environment ahead of the storm will be more conducive and allow for a concentration of storms and rain bands near the center. The current forecast track takes Emily over higher terrain in Haiti and eastern Cuba. This will keep Emily struggling till the storm moves back over open water. This should take place once around the Bahamas. The latest Forecast Track shows a move to the left, or west over the 48 hour and 72 hour forecast positions. Flash floods and mudslides are expected in Haiti as heavy rain soaks hill sides and Earthquake damaged areas.
