In the tropics, Hurricane Earl has brushed Bermuda and is on the move in the central Atlantic. At 5 am, Earl was located near 32.7 North, 62.4 West, about 140 miles east-northeast of Bermuda. A tropical storm warning is still in effect there early Friday morning. Earl’s maximum sustained winds were 100 miles per hour at 5 am, and the hurricane was moving north-northeast at 17 miles per hour.
Elsewhere, Danielle is now an post-tropical system in the middle of the Atlantic. The wave entering the central Atlantic has a medium chance of developing until it reaches an area of hostile winds in a day or so. And the wave in the far eastern Atlantic has a low chance of becoming a depression during the next five days.
