Tropical Storm Edouard

February 5, 2013
Tropical Storm Edouard is looking decidedly more organized in this true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from Tuesday, September 3, 2002, than it did the previous day. Located off the Atlantic Coast of the southeast United States, the storm briefly intensified between September 2 and 3, but by the time this image was acquired by the Terra satellite on Tuesday afternoon, the intensification had halted. Edouard is expected to weaken to tropical depression status as it moves quickly toward land. As of Tuesday evening, forecasters were predicting the storm would come ashore in northern Florida within 24 hours.
