Hurricane Summary POSTED: October 25, 2014 9:49 p.m. Strong Shear Across the Tropics A strongly sheared area of low pressure will pass just south of Bermuda tonight and it will cause a round of heavy rain. Amounts should average 0.50 to 1.00 inch, with some local amounts of 2.00 inches, so this will impact clean-up efforts from Hurricane Gonzalo. The sheared remains of Tropical Depression 9 is sitting over the waters of the northwestern Caribbean Sea. Since waters are quite warm and there is less wind shear near the Honduran coast, there is some chance of reorganization later this weekend or early next week. However, dry air to the north of the system and interaction with the Central American coast will be inhibiting factors. High pressure currently over Texas will shift east across Florida early next week before reaching Bermuda by midweek. This will then steer the system into Central America or perhaps back into the lower Yucatan Peninsula. The American global model shows the system getting into the southern Bay of Campeche later next week while the European model keeps it over southeastern Mexico. The main impact from this system will be heavy rain over parts of Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula through next week. A large tropical wave about halfway between the Cape Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles will struggle to develop due to strong wind sheer aloft.
