430AM EST-Sunday Update Beta is now the 7th Major Hurricane of the 2005 Atlantic Season. Landfall should occur within the next 8-12 hours. ~dw
UPDATE: As of 2AM Saturday, now a Category 1 hurricane. NHC indicates that the turn to the west has begun. -HF
Tropical Storm Beta is moving slowly northward today, but expected to bend back westward toward the coast of Nicaragua. It may be a category 1 or 2 hurricane as it makes landfall. It has been taking a while and moving a bit more north than originally thought, but it is still forecast to move back westward.
There is another area east of Beta near Jamaica worth watching too. Looks like the Caribbean will be busy for a little bit over the next several days.
Chances for tropical development south of Jamaica in the next two days: Code:
