Upon being classified, Tomas was in an area of low wind shear and high moisture, both supportive of rapid intensification. At the time, the low-level and upper-level circulations were not vertically aligned, which was expected to cause slow strengthening. The NHC forecast indicated that Tomas was expected to attain hurricane status within 36 to 48 hours.[6] By three hours after it was classified, however, the winds had already increased to 60 mph (95 km/h).[7] The outflow became well-established in all quadrants as deep convection increased into a prominent rain band.[8] Radar on Martinique indicated an eye was forming, and Tomas continued west-northwestward toward the Lesser Antilles, steered by a ridge to its north.[9] While located only 35 miles (55 km) east of St. Vincent, Tomas attained hurricane status, based on Hurricane Hunters recording surface winds of 75 mph (120 km/h). At the time, the eye was from 3546 miles (5674 km) in diameter.[10]
