[Monday] Subtropical Development Possible this Week Between Bahamas and Bermuda – No Immediate Threat

   Posted by Levi at 12:47pm on October 17, 2016  - 1 comment

An upper-level trough east of Florida is generating a region of disturbed weather near and east of the southeastern Bahamas. Such a system could gradually organize into a subtropical low between the Bahamas and Bermuda during the course of this week, but development would be slow to occur. The system poses no immediate threat, but wet weather could continue to impact portions of the Bahamas over the next few days. The National Hurricane Center gives this disturbance a 20% chance of developing into a subtropical or tropical storm over the next 2 days, and 50% over the next 5 days.

Wind shear will be increasing as Nicole approaches Bermuda, but some additional strengthening is possible before the hurricane arrives.
