Quoting:JOSEPHINE WILL CONTINUE TO PASS JUST SOUTH OF THE CAPE
VERDE ISLANDS TODAY AND TONIGHT...AND OVER THE OPEN WATERS OF THE
EASTERN TROPICAL ATLANTIC ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE NEAR 40 MPH...65 KM/HR...WITH HIGHER
GUSTS. STRENGTHENING IS FORECAST DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF
DAYS...AND JOSEPHINE COULD BE NEAR HURRICANE STRENGTH ON WEDNESDAY
Josephine is still SO far out, they don't know where it's going or how big it's going to get. Right now they are leaving it as a tropical storm - which is ok with me! (Not that they ask my permission... LOL)
Quoting:GRADUAL WEAKENING IS REFLECTED IN THE FORECAST THROUGH DAY 3. AFTERWARD...THE INTENSITY MODELS ARE SUGGESTING THAT THE TROUGH WILL FILL ENOUGH TO LESSEN THE SHEAR CAUSING JOSEPHINE TO STRENGTHEN A BIT.
