That was quick.

This TS is expected to rapidly intensify into a major hurricane and, for now, travel along much the same path that Irma did.

You took a moment to sneeze and I beat you to it. Seriously, was that a TD for what, a few hours?

I've been watching it since it was just off Capo Verde as a tropical wave with a 20% chance of development. Gotta keep an eye on those big thunderstorms rolling out of West Africa this time of year. I always do, but they've been smothered in Saharan dust and shredded by wind shear out in the Atlantic for the past few years.

And it's forecasted to be a Cat 3 over PR. But I think Irma missed PR, I forget. Maybe just clipped them?

Yep, can pop up quick! Went from a tiny blob to a more classic spin quickly! Thanks for starting thread!

11aEST: Winds 65mph, moving WNW 15mph, pressure 994mb. Dry air getting into western side of storm slowing down strengthening rate temporarily. Forecast to be around a Cat3 near Virgin Islands & Puerto Rico this week after passing as a hurricane through portions of Lesser Antilles region. For storm track the NHC mentioned their going with the slightly more southern route "closest to the ECMWF and HCCA models, which have been doing very well this hurricane season."
