SOURCE: NOAA – Tropical Storm Cindy, which has been steadily gaining strength, seems to have reached a temporary plateau in its intensification.
According to the latest update at 5:00 PM AST, the storm’s center was located near latitude 13.3 North and longitude 49.3 West.
Cindy continues to move in a west-northwest direction at a speed of 16 mph (26 km/h).
While Cindy’s movement is expected to persist in the same general direction over the next few days, the forecast track indicates that the system will remain well east and northeast of the northern Leeward Islands through early next week.
As of now, there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
The maximum sustained winds of Cindy remain at 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Although there might be some slight strengthening over the next day or so, gradual weakening is expected afterwards.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the center of the storm.
While this radius indicates the area of immediate concern, it is important for residents in the region to remain vigilant and prepared.
The estimated minimum central pressure of Cindy is 1003 mb (29.62 inches).
As weather experts closely monitor the storm’s progress, it is crucial for individuals to stay updated with the latest information and heed any advisories or warnings issued by local authorities.
While Cindy’s current status suggests a temporary pause in its intensification, conditions can change rapidly.
It is essential for residents and visitors in potentially affected areas to have emergency plans in place and to stay informed through trusted sources.
The National Weather Service will continue to provide regular updates on Tropical Storm Cindy.
Citizens are encouraged to stay tuned to local news channels, official weather reports, and government communications for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
