(1PM CDT advisory on Laura):LOCATION ABOUT 55 MI...90 KM S OF THE EASTERN TIP OF CUBA PRESENT MOVEMENT...WNW OR 285 DEGREES AT 21 MPH...33 KM/H
Yes, it is truly amazing that Laura has been able to strengthen a bit (let alone hold together) considering the center's nearly continuous interaction with significant terrain. The favorable mid/upper-level wind environment has greatly helped Laura and may allow a period of potentially rapid intensification in the southeast and central Gulf once clear of Cuba. Given the favorable parameters, perhaps the fast forward motion (over the islands) has helped limit the unfavorable friction of terrestrial interaction.
