Humberto Hurricane Waring Bermuda Jerry Tropical Storm Watch St Maarten St Barthelemy Hurricane Humberto is raking Bermuda at the moment. Hamilton Bermuda is reporting southwest winds at 40 mph gusting to 62 mph as of 6pm Atlantic Standard time. Humberto is located 100 miles west northwest of Bermuda as of the 5pm advisory. Hurricane force winds will batter the island tonight before Humberto begins to move away to the north on Thursday. HUMBERTO SATELLITE There is an Air Force plane headed into Humberto right now and on the satellite picture it seems that Humberto may have already reached peak intensity. The eye is cloud filled and it is perhaps a bit less symmetrical than it was 24 hours ago. None the less it is a category 3 hurricane on the current advisory with max winds of 120 mph. Once Humberto is done with Bermuda it will move northeast or north northeast parallel to our coastline. Look for rough ocean seas with rip currents and high waves developing on Thursday and possibly lasting into Saturday. Humberto will eventually turn back to the northeast or east northeast and poses no threat to Nova Scotia or New Foundland. It may eventually make its way across the Atlantic as a strong extra tropical storm. JERRY SATELLITE Tropical Storm Jerry is a small tropical storm but it has strengthened today. Maximum winds are now 60 mph and Jerry is expected to become a hurricane in the next day or so. Conditions are favorable for strengthening at least for now Tropical Storm Watch is posted for St Maarten and St Barthelemy in the Northern Leeward Islands. Jerry is moving west northwestward. The ridge to the north is not all that strong to force Jerry on a more westerly course which would make it a bigger threat for the Leeward Islands. The current forecast track will take Jerry just north of the Leewards but close enough for some impact in the northernmost islands. TROPICAL DEPRESSION IMELDA Tropical Storm Imelda came inland into Southeast Texas yesterday as a minimal tropical storm however it is creating a huge rain problem for Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana. Some areas have received over a foot of rain and rainfall amounts could double from here as the radar still shows lots of heavy downpours and thunderstorms still going on. The heaviest rains are falling mostly to the east and northeast of Houston.

Coldest Night in Months Great Weather Continues Summer Weekend Ahead

You probably have to go back to early June to find a night as cool as this. In fact we have frost and freeze warnings up for much of Northern New England where lows in many areas will break below the 30 degree mark! We won’t be that cold but it will be cool enough with many areas here dropping into the 40s with only the warmest urban areas staying above the 50 degree mark by morning. This is how we get very cold around here with a high to the northeast and a north northeast wind blowing down the coast.

The clouds along the coast that were caused by an upper trough moving south have now thinned out and the satellite shows mostly clear skies from Maine to Maryland. Hurricane Humberto is actually helping to drag that chilly Canadian air southward. Windows open might mean having a blanket close by tonight.

Radars are quiet and are not an issue here through Sunday. Thursday will be mostly sunny with highs in the cool upper 60s and lower 70s. Then as winds turn more west and southwest on Friday we are going to begin a warm up The high to the north drops down to Virginia and then off the Mid Atlantic coast.

Nice Weather Continues While Humberto Nears Bermuda Category 3 120 MPH Winds

Under mostly sunny skies, Friday’s highs will reach the mid to upper 70s. Then it is on to the last weekend of the summer which will feel like a warm summer day but not necessarily a hot summer day. We will have sunshine for both Saturday and Sunday with highs both days in the low to mid 80s. It will be a good weekend for the beaches though the surf may still be a bit rough on Saturday thanks to Hurricane Humberto which will be long gone to the northeast.

Monday could bring the first chance for showers in well over a week as a trough approaches on Monday and an cold front arrives Monday night. Even if we get showers they don’t appear to amount to much. Dry weather follows behind these systems for the first days of Autumn which arrives Monday.
