Despite Being A Tropical Storm Nadine Still Has An Eye Seen By Infrared NASA Imagery
Forecasters know that Tropical Storm Nadine is a fighter as it continues to stay alive in the eastern Atlantic Ocean. Even satellite imagery shows Nadine's fighting spirit, because although Nadine is now a tropical storm, infrared data clearly shows that Nadine maintained an eye early on Oct. 2.
At 11 a.m. EDT on Oct. 2, Nadine remains a tropical storm and appears to be weakening. Nadine's maximum sustained winds were near 65 mph (100 kph). The center of Tropical Storm Nadine was located near latitude 34.2 north and longitude 37.5 west. Nadine is moving toward the east-southeast near 7 mph (11 kph) and is expected to turn east then northeast on Wednesday, Oct. 3.
The National Hurricane Center expects Nadine's center will approach the central and northwestern Azores late on Oct. 3, Wednesday. Meanwhile south of Nadine System 96L appears to be ripe for development, and may become a tropical depression in the next two days. If the low pressure area strengthens and organizes further into a tropical storm, it would be named Oscar.
