Bermuda to face lashing from Hurricane Humberto

Bermuda to face lashing from Hurricane Humberto”

Bermuda's Belco electric power company said 28,600 customers were without service because of the storm.

On Wednesday, Jerry is expected to cross over Bermuda, which weathered Category 3 Hurricane Humberto earlier this week. "6 at once in both basins combined is thought to tie a modern NHC record, with two other disturbances adding the cherries on top of a insane busy day!"

Hurricane Jerry, which dropped to a category 1 storm Friday morning, is churning through the Atlantic on a path that largely keeps it away from land, although the edges of the storm are expected to bring heavy rain and unsafe waves to the Leeward Islands through Friday.

Tropical storm watches have been issued for St. Maarten, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, and Saba and St. Eustatius.

According to the 11 a.m. update on Thursday from the National Hurricane Center, the storm has maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour, and is moving toward the west-northwest at 16 miles per hour. A west-northwest motion at a slightly faster forward speed is expected over the next few days.

Tropical Storm Jerry also formed Wednesday far out in the Atlantic and was forecast to become a hurricane before closing in on the outermost Caribbean islands Thursday night or Friday.

Atmospheric conditions are not ideal for Jerry to get too strong, but these factors don't point strongly one way or the other.

Late in the weekend we will see if Jerry starts to turn to the north and follows Humberto out to sea.

Hurricane Jerry is one of six named storms whirling at once in the Atlantic and Pacific this week, setting a record. This track could take Jerry across the Turks and Caicos and Bahamas early next week.

As of 5:00 p.m. today, the eye of Hurricane Jerry was located near latitude 17.5 North, longitude 55.8 West. It will be a very close call.

"But the main reason for seas and surf to remain stirred up along part of the southwestern Atlantic coast will have to do with a building area of high pressure near the Carolina coast this weekend".

Humberto lashed the tiny British archipelago with hurricane force winds, blowing off some rooftops, before passing on late Wednesday, weather forecasters said. The humid air will quickly return later in the week, however.

The storms were Humberto, Imelda, Jerry, Kiko, Lorena and Mario.

The dynamical models indicate that Jerry will dissipate in about 4 days and the official NHC forecast track (red circle) does as well.
