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

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

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.

    From the looks of it & according to Joe Bastardi’s track for this system, it appears it will drift back north-northwestward toward the U.S. as Tropical/Subtropical Storm Otto then possibly get turned northeastward away from the U.S. by an incoming Cold Front. How worried should the State of Connecticut be for this future system? Please answer back. Thank you.
