Hurricane Julia 2010
Hurricane Julia 2010 – The fifth hurricane of the season is beginning to strengthen, with Hurricane Julia coming in as a recently ranked Category 1 hurricane. Right now she is in the far eastern section of the Atlantic Ocean and is moving west-northwest. According to weather trackers, she is expected to begin moving on a northwesterly track, although it is unlikely that she will cause any disruptions to the United States mainland.
Hurricane Igor is still being ranked as a Category 4 hurricane, although it did weaken a bit overnight. It is moving west-northwest across the central area of the Atlantic Ocean. Hurricane Igor is also expected to pass by the United States without causing any disruptions, and many weather forecasters have said that it will probably begin to turn west-northwest. However, Igor could hit Bermuda and pose a few problems for that country.
Weather forecasters say that they are continuing to watch an area of pressure in the central Caribbean Sea, as it could become a tropical storm. Right now it is only producing rain clouds and showers, however National Hurricane Forecasters are saying that it is moving into the right area to develop. There is a 40 percent chance it may become a tropical storm.
