August 3, 2016 5pmEST update:
Reminder, up to date info can be found from US National Hurricane Center: National Hurricane Center

(EDIT: NHC just updated to correct 5pm advisory, Hurricane Hunter aircraft finds hurricane force winds, Earl now upgraded to hurricane. Winds 75mph, pressure holding 988mb, moving West at 14mph.)

Landfall expected along Belize coast later tonight or early Thursday.

Storm surge will be an issue for some low lying communities in Belize.

Heavy rains will be a problem with possible flash flooding and mud slides.

Still expected to become a hurricane just prior to landfall but effects basically the same compared to current strong Tropical Storm state:

"HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are probably occurring along the
north coast of Honduras, including the Bay Islands. These conditions
will reach Belize and Mexico within the hurricane and tropical storm
warning area by tonight or early Thursday. Hurricane conditions are
expected in the Bay Islands of Honduras during the next several
hours, and in portions of the hurricane warning area in Belize and
Mexico tonight or early Thursday.

RAINFALL: Earl is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 8
to 12 inches over portions of Belize, Honduras, Guatemala, and the
Yucatan peninsula of Mexico through Thursday night. Very heavy
rain will reach the Mexican states of Tabasco and Veracruz between
Thursday night and Saturday morning. Isolated maximum amounts of
16 inches are possible in Belize and Mexico. These rains could
result in life-threatening flash floods and mud slides.

STORM SURGE: A storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 4
to 6 feet above normal tide levels along the immediate coast of
Belize and the eastern Yucatan peninsula near and to the north of
where the center makes landfall. Storm surge will raise water
levels by as much as 2 to 4 feet above normal tide levels in areas
of onshore winds on the Bay Island of Honduras. Near the coast, the
surge will be accompanied by large and damaging waves."

Edit: added images:











Look at that track! Almost like it's bounced off the coast!

It looks like Hurricane Earl might hit just south of where Tropical Storm Danielle was.

Wasn't there an earl just a few years ago that nearly wrecked our coast? It was a major hurricane and scraped off cape hatteras. Barely missed us.

Yep, eventually the Atlantic will roar to life. Honestly right now the Atlantic has the best setup for a record breaking season, only thing stopping it is the pacific. Goes to show the influence the Pacific has.

I already see the headlines once the Atlantic roars to life, " Global warming making Atlantic storms more dangerous" people will forget this hurricane drought completely.
