Regenerated Tropical Storm Gabrielle Steadily Marching Toward the Island of Bermuda

Posted on

Gabrielle which died the night of Thursday September 5th near Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic has regenerated into a tropical storm and is advancing northward toward the Island of Bermuda. As of this post, it has maximum sustained winds of 60mph and was located 55 miles south of the Island of Bermuda. Winds are increasing on the island as rain bands approach from the south and east. The system is heavy sheared, meaning that thunderstorms are strongly displaced to the east of the center because of strong upper-level winds impacting the cyclone. A little additional strengthening is possible, although the shear should keep the cyclone from intensifying greatly before it reaches the island tonight.

Bermuda Radar at 6:13pm local time showing the center of Gabrielle to the south of the island.

Meanwhile, in the far eastern Atlantic, Tropical Storm Humberto has continued to intensify, although it has pulled west of the Cape Verde Islands, ending the tropical storm wind threat there. Humberto is expected to become a hurricane tonight, the first of the 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season. It will move northward over the coming few days and be no immediate threat to land.
