NHC looking at extra tropical system

Published 1:48 am Friday, January 8, 2016


If flooding a few weeks ago wasn’t crazy enough, there’s a extra tropical low pressure system in the Atlantic Ocean some 425 miles west-southwest of Bermuda.

The storm is producing a large area of gale force winds and maximum winds of 60 to 65 mph.

The National Hurricane Center predicts that environmental conditions are not expected to be conducive for subtropical or tropical cyclone formation through the weekend while the low moves east-northeastward into the central Atlantic Ocean.

Still, NHC says that by the middle of next week, conditions could become conducive for it to acquire some subtropical characteristics while it moves east-southeastward into the eastern subtropical Atlantic.
