2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season Birdseye Discussion #178A (Special Update)

...THURSDAY NOVEMBER 24 2016 1:45 PM EDT...
Hurricane Otto makes history by rapidly strengthening into a maximum category 2 with 110 mph maximum sustained winds...and making landfall in Nicaragua just norht of the Costa Rica/Nicaragua border...an area that does not commonly see hurricanes of this intensity. Flash flooding is expected over parts of Nicaragua and Costa Rica...and significant wind damage is expected near the center at the landfall location and part of the way inland. As a result of its current intensity and current forward pace...Otto is expected to survive its passage across Central America and move into the eastern Pacific. In such a scenario the National Hurricane Center would retain the name Otto and I would continue to issue special feature sections with forecasts on Otto.

I will be issuing my next full blog update on Otto and the rest of the Atlantic tropics either late tonight or early tomorrow morning. Visit www.nhc.noaa.gov for up to the minute latest information on Otto...including watches and/or warnings that are currently in effect.
