Hurricane Earl upgraded, watches and warnings may be issued for East Coast

As of the 11:00 am advisory, Hurricane Earl has been upgraded to a Category III storm, with wind intensity estimated at 105 knots.  Forecast models continue to suggest the storm will recurve, beginning its turn in the next day or so.  But Earl has been stubbornly tracking to the west or west-northwest.  The cone of uncertainty takes the storm dangerously close to the upper east coast.

Watches and warnings are likely within the next day or so.

You can see the forecast model guidance in the StormPulse page on this blog, found here.

Gimme some feedback in the comments.
