12th Named Storm Of Season Forms In Atlantic

September 20, 2016

While locals are keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Karl which the BWS has said is a “potential threat to Bermuda,” yet another storm has formed in the Atlantic, with Tropical Storm Lisa becoming the 12th named storm of the 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season.


Lisa is “not a potential threat to Bermuda at this time,” the Bermuda Weather Service said this afternoon, and its closest point of approach to Bermuda within 72 hrs is forecast to be 1488nm to the east-south-east at 12pm on Friday, Sept 23.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said, “At 11.00am AST, the center of Tropical Storm Lisa was located near latitude 15.3 North, longitude 30.4 West.

“Lisa is moving toward the northwest near 12 mph [19 km/h] and this general motion is expected to continue through Thursday.

“Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 40 mph [65 km/h] with higher gusts. Some additional strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles [110 km] from the center.”

While Lisa is far away from us at this time, it is one of two storms in the Atlantic right now, and the BWS has said that Tropical Storm Karl is a “potential threat to Bermuda,” and Minister of National Security Jeffrey Baron advised that the Ministry is “closely monitoring the forecast track of the storm.”
