Hurricane Watch posted for El Salvado - 5:15PM EDT
A Tropical Storm Warning and Hurricane Watch is now in effect for El Salvador. The National Hurricane Center has now come in line with my forecast of Adrian reaching hurricane strength before landfall. Adrian is maintaining intense banding and is carrying very intense rain. NHC is also expecting Adrian to transition to an extra-tropical storm after she crosses the Caribean. This is to be expected with the cold water temperatures of May. As I mentioned before, strong upper level winds will propel Adrian quickly and rip apart any concentrated convection associated with tropical systems.
