Earl weakens considerably. Eyewall to pass just south of Outerbanks,NC

Akshay Deoras,
Severe Weather Forecaster

Hurricane Earl has weakened considerably in the last few hours due to the eyewall replacement and entering cooler SST.Its also clear from the weak banding feature of Earl. Earl as on 11PM EDT is a Cat.2 Hurricane with central max sustained winds of 105mph,Central pressure of 951mb and moving NNE @ 18mph.
From the current satellite imagery, looks like Earl will just pass few miles east of outer banks,North Carolina! So precautions must be taken.

Earl's next hit can be SE of New England on Saturday but since its now getting a very strong upper level shears, dry air input and cooler SST from Cape Hatteras, before striking SE New england, it will be just a Tropical storm or Depression
