Don is dead but Emily could soon be born

Unfortunately Tropical Storm Don did little in the way to offset the drought conditions in Texas and as a meteorologist, I can honestly say it was one of the most bizarre tropical storms I have ever tracked as the precipitation field just fell apart once the storm hit the Texas Coast. Another strong tropical wave is being monitored about 900 miles East of the Windward Islands. This tropical wave is likely to develop into a tropical storm (Emily) and eventually into a hurricane.

Here is the projected forecast paths of some of our forecast models showing where the future Emily may track.

I would look for the National Hurricane Center to initiate advisories on the future Tropical Storm later this afternoon. All interests along the Southeastern United States Coast should monitor the progress of this future tropical storm very closely.
