Irene curving out the sea, TD Ten forms in her tracks
As expected last night, Irene has sucked in plenty of dry air which has contained the system. Irene remains a strong tropical storm but is being deflected harmlessly out to sea but a cold front. The central pressure is up to 999 mb and winds seems unusually strong for such a high pressure at 70 mph. So much for the beneficials rains in the East!
