Hello to all..
The following is a Tropical Storm Joaquin update. Joaquin is intensifying at this time and the 5 PM EDT/2100 UTC 9/29/15 Advisory has Joaquin with maximum sustained winds of 65 MPH with interests in the Bahamas asked to closely the monitor the progress of Joaquin. Joaquin is expected to intensify into a hurricane in the next 24 hours. Currently, model guidance shows a wide track variation with some models implying a US East Coast threat while other models keep Joaquin out at sea or a threat to the Bahamas and then Bermuda. Future model runs will give a better consensus on the track of Joaquin. Joaquin’s potential threat timeframe for the US East Coast would be Friday and into the weekend if a track closer to the US East Coast occurs. It is noted the track error is large in the 4-5 day timeframe.
Advisories on Joaquin can be found off the Main Menu on the voipwx.net web site as well as on the voipwxnet Facebook and Twitter social media feeds. They can also be found on the National Hurricane Center web site, via the following link:
