Tropical Storm Ian in Caribbean, will strengthen to a hurricane and move into the Gulf


Tropical Storm Ian is strengthening in the Caribbean, now up to 45mph max winds as it moves west at 14mph. Ian is expected to strengthen into a hurricane in the coming days, then move into the Eastern Gulf. Ian will not have any impact in Texas, as models are in good agreement that the storm will move into the west coast of Florida, possibly as a major (Cat3) hurricane.

Elsewhere we have Tropical Storm Hermine off the coast of Africa, Tropical Storm Gaston in the northern Atlantic, and post tropical Fiona impacting eastern Canada. None of those storms will impact the US.
