Harvey continues to move west

Posted: Saturday, August 19, 2017. 9:15 a.m. CST.

By BBN Staff:  The National Hurricane Center (NHC), reported this morning, that Harvey remains a tropical storm but is less organized than yesterday.

As of this morning, Harvey was located 1,010 miles east of Cabo Gracias a Dios on the Nicaragua/ Honduras border with maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour with higher gusts.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Interests in the central and western Caribbean Sea, northern Nicaragua, northern Honduras, Belize, and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico should monitor the progress of Harvey.  Watches may be required for portions of these areas later today.

Harvey is moving toward the west near 22 mph (35 km/h) and this general motion is expected to continue through Sunday.

The NHC reports that a turn toward the west-northwest is expected Sunday night or Monday.

On the forecast track, the center of Harvey will move across the central and western Caribbean Sea over the weekend.

Satellite imagery and reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that Harvey is currently poorly organized, and only slow strengthening is expected during the next 48 hours.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) mainly to the northwest of the center.
