Hurricane Gaston Projected Path (MAP)

What is Hurricane Gaston's projected path?
Hurricane Gaston is the seventh named storm of the season, and the fourth tropical storm in the past 11 days.

Gaston is only a minimal Storm, with winds of 40 miles per hour. The NHC, however, expects this to change shortly. They expect Gaston to intensify over the coming 5 days and likely be a major category 3 hurricane by Tuesday morning.

Where can I see a map of Hurricane Gaston's projected path?

Most early computer models show Hurricane Gaston tracking in a westerly direction into the Caribbean, but it was too early to tell whether Gaston would enter the energy-rich Gulf of Mexico.
At 4 p.m., the center of Hurricane Gaston was located near latitude 12.9 north, longitude 37.0 west. Gaston is moving toward the west near 15 mph. A west or west-northwest motion with a significant decrease in forward speed is expected for the next several days.
For now, the official forecast calls for Hurricane Gaston to aim generally toward the northern Lesser Antilles and grow into a hurricane along the way.

If Hurricane Gaston follows that path, it would be in position to slide into the Caribbean south of Florida or turn northwest. In other words, it could go anywhere from Central America to Canada.

This is a map of Hurricane Gaston's projected path.

The five-day forecast track for hurricane Gaston ends several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles, with Gaston at hurricane strength. Five-day forecasts also come with a wide cone of uncertainty.
During the weekend, forecasters should have a better idea about what path hurricane Gaston may take next week.
