This morning Tropical Storm Ernesto looks more threatening. The image on the right shows that an upper air outflow has moved northeastward closer to the centre of the storm. Late yesterday this upper air circulation was situated closer the east coast of Panama. A strong clockwise outflow over the top of a tropical storm is a good sign of the storm becoming stronger. Will update my observation this afternoon.
