BWS: Hurricane Jerry Is A ‘Potential Threat’

September 20, 2019

In rather unwelcome news this morning, the Bermuda Weather Service has confirmed that Hurricane Jerry is a “potential threat to Bermuda”.

The BWS said its closest point of approach to Bermuda within 72 hrs is forecast to be 390 nm to the SSW at 6am on Monday [Sep 23] with the BWS adding 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, “On the forecast track, the center of Jerry will move north of the northern Leeward Islands later today, pass well north of Puerto Rico on Saturday, and be well east-northeast of the southeastern Bahamas on Sunday.

“Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 100 mph (155 km/h) with higher gusts. A gradual weakening trend is forecast to continue today, but Jerry is expected to remain a hurricane during the next few days.

“Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km).”
