Tropical Depression #9 (Issac?)






As of 9 AM MDT this morning, Tropical Depression #9 was located about 580 miles east of the island of Guadeloupe. TD #9 is a fairly large storm and is currently moving to the west at 20 mph. It has sustained winds of 35 mph, with a central pressure of 29.77 inches of mercury, or 1008 millibars.

 We should see this storm strengthen into a Tropical Storm later today, and when it does, it will be named Issac. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Aircraft is scheduled to investigate this system later this afternoon. Conditions are favorable for additional strengthening into this upcoming weekend, and possibly reaching Hurricane strength by as early as Thursday.

A lot of interests is being generated by Tropical Depression #9, which is likely to become Tropical Storm Issac, possibly as early as today. Forecast models are hinting that this storm will become a Hurricane possibly as early as Thursday, and it has the potential to strengthen into a fairly strong Hurricane after that. 

A lot of people are wondering if this next Hurricane will track further westward, and enter the Gulf of Mexico, or turn more northward, and possibly make a run up the Eastern Seaboard of the US next week. Its simply too early to know for sure, but anyone living along the Gulf of Mexico Coastline, or the Eastern Seaboard, should keep up to date with the details of this next potential Hurricane.
