A Hurricane Hunter Aircraft found a closed low level circulation in the tropical wave that is now Tropical Storm Emily. Tropical Storm Watches and Warnings have been issued for the Leeward and Windward Islands and Puerto Rico. Emily currently has winds of 40 mph and is moving West at 17 mph. Emily should continue to gradually strengthen and turn to the Northwest. The ultimate track of Emily continues to be in question due to land interaction with Hispaniola, however all residents along the Eastern Seaboard should closely monitor the progress of Emily over the next several days.
SWAT will be closely monitoring the progression of Emily as there is a chance we may hurricane chase if she comes close to the United States Coast!
