Hurricane EDOUARD most powerful Atlantic storm in two years

General outlook Monday 15th September 2015 from west to east -

Disturbance thirty three has weakened considerably in the western Gulf of Mexico. This is westbound at 12 knots and expected to move ashore along the southern Texas coast, bringing scattered showers and storms to the Texas Gulf coast.

Hurricane EDOUARD is developing spectacularly in the mid-Atlantic, moving north west at 12 knots with sustained winds of almost 100 knots. Aerial imagery shows a beautifully formed eye, good slinky windfield outflow and lust-crazed eyewall replacement. This is set to increase further to a category three, making this the most powerful Atlantic hurricane in two years. No land areas will be affected. Totally wasted on fish.

Disturbance thirty four is now around 800 miles north-nor'-east of the Amazon delta and is moving to the west-nor'west at 18 knots. The chance of development over the next week is fairly low, but in any event, this will bring increased rainfall to the Lesser Antilles on Thursday and Friday.

Disturbance thirty five is a weak tropical wave a day west of the Cape Verde Islands and moving to the west at 18 knots. Development appears unlikely over the next week.

Watch out fish – otherwise stand easy.
