Hurricane Emily; Gaining Strength
      #43085 - Thu Jul 14 2005 03:57 PM

Hurricane Emily is now a Category 2 Hurricane as the 11 am Update from the Hurricane Center. It is on the border line of being a Category 3 Hurricane (Major Hurricane). As of 2 pm Update The Hurricane Center did put out a strengthen of 10 mph and the winds were around 110 mph, and wind gusts of 130 mph. It only is 1 mph away from being a Category Three Hurricane. It is to make an westernly turn. it seems like half of the storm wants to wander to the east and the other sisde of the storm wants to head west. It is expected to hit Mexico and Southern Texas possibly? There is a slight chance to hit Louisina, probably only Tropical Storm Force Winds if so. The path of Hurricane Emily is still uncertain. The next advisory from the Hurricane Center will be at 5 pm EDT and then a following complete update at 8 pm EDT.
What is the path of Emily?

What are the chances of steering currents pushing Emily west? Any guesses- educated or otherwise?

The current forecast is for the storm to generally move west-northwest. If the upper-level steering pattern moreso favors an enahnced westward movement, or if the storm were to weaken significantly (not likely), then the storm could move even further towards the west than is current projected.
