Area of Interest - Hurricane Rina
      #92361 - Mon Oct 24 2011 01:19 AM

Tropical Storm Rina located in the northwestern Caribbean Sea near 16.4N 82.2W at 24/03Z, or about 200 miles SSW of Grand Caymen Island and moving to the north northwest at 7 knots with sustained winds of 35 knots and central pressure of 1004MB.
From NHC:
"A TROPICAL STORM WATCH IS IN EFFECT FOR
THE COAST OF HONDURAS FROM PUNTA CASTILLA EASTWARD TO THE NICARAGUAN BORDER."

Heavy rains are occurring over northeastern Honduras. A slow movement to the northwest is likely for the next few days as high pressure remains in place over the Gulf of Mexico. Moderate windshear will lift slowly to the north and inhibit significant development for the next couple of days - although some slow development is possible.

With a slower forward speed, Rina remained within a narrow zone of light windshear and rapidly intensified to a Cat I Hurricane. At 24/18Z, Hurricane Rina was located about 195 miles southwest of Grand Caymen Island near 17N 83W moving very slowly to the northwest. A movement more to the west northwest is likely later this evening and NHC anticipates additional intensification. Note that stronger zones of windshear exist to the northwest and the southwest of Rina and drier air exists to the west through north of the hurricane - but the dry air is still quite some distance away, so some intensification is likely given the rapid intensification that has already occurred.

No Watches or Warnings are currently in effect.
