Wanda Tropical Storm and Eye Path
After roving the Atlantic as a subtropical storm, the storm holding the final name of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season list transformed into Tropical Storm Wanda on Monday evening.
The storm grew out of a nor’easter that slammed the mid-Atlantic and New England at the beginning of last week and then drifted out across the open northern Atlantic.
Since Victor formed over the far eastern section of the basin on Sept. 29 and prowled the open seas until dissipating on Oct. 4, the Atlantic had not had a named storm in its waters.
Wanda was around 845 miles (1,365 kilometers) west-southwest of the Azores, an island chain in the Atlantic that is an autonomous territory of Portugal, as of early Tuesday morning. It was traveling east at 7 mph (11 km/h) with sustained winds of 45 mph (75 km/h).
“Wanda has totally transitioned from a subtropical storm to a tropical storm,” Meteorologist said. “Wanda’s wind field also became more concentrated around the storm’s core — another aspect supporting Wanda’s tropical storm designation.”
Wanda’s wind speed intensity has maintained the same as when it was a subtropical storm, despite the fact that it is now a tropical cyclone, he noted. Wanda, on the other hand, “has a narrower radius of maximum winds that wrap around the storm’s core.”
Wanda is not predicted to hit land, but maritime interests should brace for heavy seas. “Wanda is forecast to take a northeastward turn on Tuesday towards cooler waters,” Meteorologists noted.
Another tropical disturbance was being followed by recent weather forecast analysts elsewhere in the Atlantic basin, with a low likelihood of developing in the next 48 hours. This tropical cyclone was positioned near off Panama’s northern coast. Regardless of how it develops, this system could bring heavy rain to parts of Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama on Tuesday.
If this low pressure system develops into a tropical storm, it will be the first to be given a name from the World Meteorological Organization’s supplementary name list, which was created to replace the Greek alphabet (WMO). The National Hurricane Center (NHC) dipped into the Greek Alphabet to identify extra storms after the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season was exceptionally active.
