Overview

The Atlantic Basin remains full of activity today with three hurricanes, Sally, Paulette and Teddy, and each one of them is currently categorized as category 2 storms with maximum sustained winds of 100 mph.  Hurricane Sally continues to move painfully slowly in the northern Gulf region and will likely end up producing more than two feet of rain in some spots before finally pushing away on Thursday.  Hurricane Paulette continues to move rapidly away from the US in an east-to-northeast direction while Hurricane Teddy likes heads towards Bermuda and it could reach major hurricane status. In fact, Hurricane Teddy will have to be closely monitored in coming days as a blocking high develops over Canada which may force this system to the northwest after passing over Bermuda. In addition, a strong tropical wave now spinning over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico has a good chance of intensifying over the next day or so; especially, after Hurricane Sally pushes farther inland.
