The cone is then formed by smoothly connecting the area swept out by the set of circles. Chances are, impacts will likely extend beyond where the cone is pointed.
Projected Path The red-shaded area denotes the potential path of the center of the tropical cyclone. Their effects can span many hundreds of miles from the center. The yellow and red shaded area along the upper Texas and Louisiana coasts is where tropical storm watches and warnings were in effect at the time of this image, including well east of the forecast path.
The convection has moved closer to the center of circulation as of Tuesday afternoon, but tropical-storm-force winds are still missing, which is why the system is still a depression. This information is also presented in graphical form for the 34 kt50 ktand 64 kt thresholds. This forecast uncertainty is conveyed by the track forecast "cone", the solid white and stippled white areas in the graphic.
Note that impacts particularly heavy rain, high surf, coastal flooding with any tropical cyclone may spread beyond its forecast path. Rainfall flooding may be the biggest concern from this system later in the week. Considering the combined forecast uncertainties in track, intensity, and size, the chances that any particular location will experience winds of 34 kt tropical storm force50 kt, or 64 kt hurricane force from this tropical cyclone are presented in tabular form for selected locations and forecast positions.
The orange circle indicates the current position of the center of the tropical cyclone. The depression may strengthen into a tropical storm late Tuesday.
Tropical Depression Nine, still fighting wind shear, may finally gain enough steam to become a tropical storm late Tuesday, then will make its turn toward the Gulf Coast Wednesday with heavy rain and gusty winds.
A storm surge of 3 to 6 feet was observed in coastal Mississippi, Alabama and southeastern Louisiana. At a Glance The forecast path for a tropical storm or hurricane shows where the center of a storm is expected to track. Follow updates to this article here. The system could also produce coastal flooding and isolated tornadoes.
Infrared Satellite Image The highest cloud tops, corresponding to the most vigorous convection, are shown in the orange and red colors. It is also important to realize that a tropical cyclone is not a point.
If only an L is displayed, then the system is forecast to be a remnant low. At this time, the NHC expects this system to be a tropical storm as it approaches the Florida Gulf coast later this week. The solid white area depicts the track forecast uncertainty for days of the forecast, while the stippled area depicts the uncertainty on days The latest position of the center of circulation is also plotted.
High surf and some coastal flooding would also be possible depending on the track of the low. The dot indicating the forecast center location will be black if the cyclone is forecast to be tropical and will be white with a black outline if the cyclone is forecast to be extratropical.
The location of the current system is also shown. As the satellite image overlaid with the projected path shows below, rain and thunderstorms orange and red shadings extended well to the east of the path along the Gulf Coast to as far east as the Florida Panhandle. However, the intensity forecast for this system is more uncertain than usual, for the reasons we mentioned above.

This story does not necessarily represent the position of our parent company, IBM. Gusty winds could also affect a swath from coastal Georgia to the coastal Carolinas Thursday night through Friday. Impacts from a particular storm can be felt well outside of the forecast path.
That faster forward motion will mitigate the heavy rain threat somewhat. Both will have a big bearing on how strong this tropical cyclone can ultimately become before its Gulf Coast landfall. Current Satellite, Wind Shear Areas of high wind shear are shown in the purple contours. A slug of heavy rain may also push northeast into southern Georgia and the eastern Carolinas Thursday night through Friday.
The heaviest total rainfall from this system appears to line up over western Cuba, South and central Florida, including the Florida Keys, where many locations look primed to pick up at least 3 inches of total rainfall.
After its Gulf landfall, Hermine will track close enough to the coast of Georgia and the Carolinas Thursday night into early Saturday to bring wind and rain, there. The distribution of hurricane and tropical storm force winds in this tropical cyclone can be seen in the Wind History graphic linked above.
