The Pacific Disaster Center’s (PDC Global) Saturday, October 28, 2023, Tropical Cyclone Activity Report…for the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico
CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES:
Tropical Cyclone Tammy…is located about 560 miles east-northeast of Bermuda
Tropical Cyclone Tammy
TAMMY’S SECOND TIME AS A TROPICAL CYCLONE NEARLY UP
According to the NHC advisory number 39
Tammy is moving toward the east-southeast near 17 mph (28 km/h), and the
cyclone is expected to gradually turn southward before dissipating by the middle part of next week.
Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Additional weakening is expected, and Tammy is forecast to become a post-tropical remnant low as soon as tomorrow.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km) from the center.
>>> Southwestern Atlantic Ocean…
Shower and thunderstorm activity has increased with a small area of low pressure located about 200 miles northeast of the coast of the Dominican Republic. While upper-level winds are only marginally conducive for further development, this system could become a short-lived tropical depression or storm over the next day or so.
By Monday, upper-level winds are forecast to become too strong for further development as the system turns northward to the east of the northwestern Bahamas.
