Karl Strengthens To 50 MPH
Tropical Storm Conditions Friday In Bermuda
As Karl successfully pulls away from the upper low that has been shearing it for days, it has become a Tropical Storm again and satellite loops and Air Force data show Karl is on a strengthening trend as it moves northwestward. Karl will eventually turn north and then northeast and pass very close to Bermuda Friday night into Saturday morning. Bermuda will experience tropical storm conditions from Karl before it moves away to the northeast over the weekend.
