LARGE EPSILON CONTINUES TO CHURN UP THE NORTH ATLANTIC…HIGH SURF AND RIP CURRENTS POSSIBLE ALONG ATLANTIC BEACHES THIS WEEKEND

Here’s what the computer models are showing

According the NHC Advisory 21…Epsilon is moving toward the north near 13 mph (20 km/h). A turn toward the northeast is expected on Saturday. Epsilon is then forecast to continue moving northeastward with quickly increasing forward speed through early next week.

Maximum sustained winds are near 80 mph (130 km/h) with higher gusts. Slight fluctuations in intensity are possible on Saturday. Slow weakening is forecast to begin on Sunday.

Epsilon is expected to become a large and powerful post-tropical cyclone early next week. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 355 miles (575 km).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND 

SURF: Large swells generated by Epsilon will affect Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, the Leeward Islands, the east coast of the United States, and Atlantic Canada during the next few days. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

Caribbean: 

Here’s what the computer models are showing…for whats being referred to as Invest 95L

Satellite images and radar data indicate that the broad area of low pressure located just west of Grand Cayman Island is gradually becoming better defined.

Environmental conditions appear conducive for further development, and a tropical depression will likely form during the next day or two while the low drifts toward the northwest.

The system could move near western Cuba by Sunday and move slowly across the southeastern Gulf of Mexico by early next week. Interests in western Cuba, the Florida Keys, and southern Florida should monitor the progress of this disturbance.

Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall will be possible over portions of the Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Cuba, southern Florida, the Florida Keys, and the northwestern Bahamas through the weekend.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…high…70 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…high…70 percent
