EPSILON BECOMES A POWERFUL POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE OVER THE NORTH ATLANTIC…THIS WILL BE THE LAST NHC ADVISORY ON EPSILON

Here’s what the computer models are showing

According the NHC Advisory 29…The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the northeast near 46 mph (74 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through Monday night. Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next day or so before the post-tropical cyclone is absorbed by a large extratropical low pressure system on Monday night or early Tuesday. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 450 miles (720 km) from the center.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND 

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

ZETA EXPECTED TO BRING HURRICANE CONDITIONS AND STORM SURGE TO PORTIONS OF THE YUCATAN PENINSULA BY LATE MONDAY

Here’s what the computer models are showing

According the NHC Advisory 6…Zeta is drifting toward the north-northwest near 2 mph (4 km/h) but a faster northwestward motion is expected over the next couple of days, followed by a turn to the north.

On the forecast track, the center of Zeta will move near or over the northern Yucatan Peninsula or the Yucatan Channel late Monday, move over the southern Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, and approach the northern Gulf Coast on Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts. Strengthening is forecast, and Zeta is expected to become a hurricane before it moves near or over the Yucatan Peninsula late Monday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) from the center.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

RAINFALL: Rainfall totals of 4 to 8 inches with local amounts of 12 inches are possible through Wednesday along and east-northeast of Zetas track from Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, central to western Cuba, and the northeast Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches with local amounts of 5 inches are possible across southern Florida and the Keys over the next 2 days, with isolated storm totals of 8 inches.

By Wednesday, heavy rainfall associated with Zeta will begin to affect the central Gulf Coast region, which may lead to flash flooding in urban areas.

WIND: Hurricane conditions are possible within the Hurricane Watch area in the Yucatan Peninsula by late Monday. Tropical storm conditions are expected within the warning area in the Yucatan peninsula late Monday, and could occur in the warning area in Western Cuba on Monday.

STORM SURGE: A dangerous storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 1-3 feet above normal tide levels along the immediate coast in the Hurricane Watch area near and to the north of where the center makes landfall in the Yucatan Peninsula.
