Tropical Storm Earl formed in the eastern Atlantic Ocean on 25 August 2010. GOES-13 10.7 µm IR images from the CIMSS Tropical Cyclones site (above) revealed a well-defined circulation, with the development of convective clusters and curved bands.

The environment around Earl was one that exhibited low values of 200-850 hPa deep layer wind shear (below), which was favorable for further intensification of the tropical cyclone.
