TOMAS – BECOMING A CARIBBEAN HURRICANE

Cold fronts do more than just bring us cooler weather.

After three days of record heat here, delightfully cooler weather moved in today (Friday) behind last night’s cold front. With the front advancing eastward into the Atlantic, tropical storm SHARY will be pushed farther away from the U.S. this weekend.

Meanwhile, tropical storm TOMAS has formed east of the Lesser Antilles on a course toward the moisture-laden air over the Caribbean. TOMAS is expected to become a major hurricane south of Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, being steered westward by the easterly winds on the southern perimeter of high pressure over the southeastern U.S. As the storm approaches Jamaica, a new cold front will replace the high, allowing hurricane TOMAS to curve north, then northeastward over eastern Cuba or western Hispaniola.

Be sure to follow each stage of intensification of TOMAS this weekend, plus the changing track of this powerful storm next week with our team of meteorologists on WJXT TV4.
