Tropical Cyclone 27L (Epsilon)…is located 190 miles east of Bermuda Atlantic Ocean:   Tropical Cyclone 27L (Epsilon) EPSILON PASSING WELL EAST OF BERMUDA Here’s what the computer models are showing According the NHC Advisory 17…Epsilon is moving toward the north-northwest near 9 mph (15 km/h). A generally northward motion with increasing forward speed is expected through early Saturday, with an even faster motion toward the northeast later that day. The center of Epsilon will be moving away from Bermuda overnight. Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher gusts. Some fluctuations in strength are expected for the next day or two before gradual weakening begins by late Saturday. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 240 miles (390 km). HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND  WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected intermittently on Bermuda through this evening. SURF: Large swells generated by Epsilon will affect Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, the Leeward Islands, the east coast of the United States, and Atlantic Canada during the next few days. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Here’s a satellite image of the Atlantic Ocean Caribbean:  A trough of low pressure, located over the western Caribbean Sea, is producing an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms which extends near Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, portions of Cuba, and the Windward Passage. Some slow development of this system is possible during the next few days while it moves northeastward near western or central Cuba, the Straits of Florida and the central Bahamas through the weekend. Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall is possible over portions of Cuba, South Florida, and the Bahamas through early next week. * Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent * Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent WSI satellite image of the Caribbean Sea Gulf of Mexico:  Latest satellite image of the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico
