According to the NHC Advisory 35A…Teddy is moving toward the north near 6 mph (9 km/h). Although some fluctuations in heading are likely, the hurricane is expected to move generally northward through Tuesday evening, followed by a turn toward the northeast on Wednesday. The center of Teddy will pass east of Bermuda today and then approach Nova Scotia late Tuesday or early Wednesday. Maximum sustained winds are near 105 mph (165 km/h) with higher gusts. Some slight strengthening is possible Monday night while Teddy begins to interact with an approaching frontal system. Although gradual weakening is forecast to begin mid-week, the cyclone is expected to remain a large and powerful hurricane Tuesday, then become a strong post-tropical cyclone when it nears Nova Scotia by Wednesday morning. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 230 miles (370 km). NOAA buoy 41049, located about 150 miles (240 km) south-southeast of the center of Teddy recently reported sustained winds of 49 mph (79 km/h) and a gust to 60 mph (97 km/h).

Remnants of Tropical Cyclone (Wilfred) – Last Advisory

What the computer models show

According to the NHC Advisory 11…The remnants are moving toward the west near 17 mph (28 km/h), and this general motion should continue during the next day or two. Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Winds should continue to decrease over the next couple of days.

 

>>> Post-Tropical Cyclone Paulette is producing a small area of showers and thunderstorms, not far to the southeast of its center of circulation. The system is meandering over marginally warm waters and is expected to begin moving eastward later today. Further development is possible and the system could become a tropical or subtropical cyclone today or tomorrow.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…60 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…60 percent

Tropical Cyclone 22L (Beta)

What the computer models show

According to the NHC Advisory 14A…Beta is moving toward the west-northwest near 6 mph (9 km/h), and this general motion is forecast to continue for the next day or so. A decrease in forward speed and a sharp turn to the north and northeast is expected Monday night and Tuesday.

On the forecast track, the center of Beta will continue to move toward the central coast of Texas and will likely move inland by Monday night. Beta is forecast to remain close to the coast of southeastern Texas on Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast before Beta reaches the Texas coast. Weakening is anticipated once Beta moves inland.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles (315 km) from the center.
