Tropical Cyclone Tammy
TAMMY INTERACTING WITH A NEARBY FRONT
According to the NHC advisory number 30
Tammy is moving toward the northeast near 14 mph (22 km/h). A northward turn is expected tonight, followed by a turn to the west-northwest by Friday with a decrease in forward speed.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 100 mph (155 km/h) with higher gusts. Steady weakening is expected for the next few days. Tammy is forecast to become a powerful extratropical cyclone by Thursday.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
SURF: Swells generated by Tammy will continue to affect portions of Bermuda, the northern Leeward Islands, the British and U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico during the next couple of days. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
