Tropical Depression Six is a “potential threat to Bermuda”, the Bermuda Weather Service said today, with its closest point of approach to Bermuda within 72 hrs forecast to be 344 nm to the WNW at 6pm on Wednesday [Aug 28] with the BWS noting that “this system may move closer to Bermuda after this time period depending upon its track.”

The latest forecast from the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, “At 500 AM EDT [0900 UTC], the center of Tropical Depression Six was located near latitude 31.0 North, longitude 71.6 West. The depression is drifting toward the southeast near 2 mph [4 km/h], and is expected to move little through tonight, then accelerate northward Wednesday to northeastward Thursday through Saturday.

“Maximum sustained winds remain near 35 mph [55 km/h] with higher gusts. Some strengthening is expected and the cyclone is forecast to become a tropical storm later tonight. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1010 mb [29.83 inches].”

Tropical Depression Six is one of two systems in the Atlantic area currently, as Tropical Storm Dorian is also churning in the Atlantic, and the BWS said that Dorian is “not a threat to Bermuda at this time.”

    The local surfers might benefit the effects of this storm. Not likely anyone else.

      Don’t be so silly! The fools that call themselves surfers know it’s not safe to enter the water when hurricanes are coming. Then when the run into difficulty they want other people to risk their lives to save their ass. I’d leave their ass right out there in difficulty. Can’t feel sorry for stupid people and ignorance.
