Named Storm Paula

Hurricane Paula formed overnight in the western Caribbean from a cluster of severe thunderstorms associated with regional convection (atmospheric lifting.) This storm was rapid to form, but the upper level winds and steering currents will not allow for immediate intensification. The computer track modeling for Paula is showing an eastern Mexico involvement through Friday, October 15, and a western Cuba involvement for the weekend. The mountainous regions of Mexico will decrease this storm's intensity over the next three days, however, it will be caught up in an upper level system that will most likely curve it's track back into the western Caribbean by early next week. We are carefully watching this system for any signs of a track change that could conceivably take it close to the Florida Keys and Miami early next week. We will post unofficial updates as needed.
