Tropical Storm Emily weakens

 

Tropical Storm Emily weakened into a depression after setting off flooding in the Dominican Republic and Haiti that killed four people, and forced thousands to evacuate their homes.

 Emily dumped heavy rains in the Bahamas and is moving away from the islands as a weak tropical depression.

The Bermuda Weather Service [BWS] said on 8 Aug Tropical Depression Emily will bring strong winds, gale force gusts, a risk of thunder, and periods of showery rain, especially later.

Emily’s closest point of approach to Bermuda within 72 hrs is forecast to be 136 nautical miles to the north north west at 4pm tomorrow.

According to the U.S. National Hurricane Center [NHC], the system presently has maximum sustained winds of 35mph [55km] per hour.

07 Aug, meteorologists said the storm was 295 miles south-southeast of cape Hatteras, N.C.

Emily had broken apart after causing floods and damaging hundreds of homes in Haiti.Forecasters expect the storm's remnants to be absorbed by a frontal zone over the next day or so.

"The only impact for Brevard from Emily should be the continuation of enhanced rip currents," said Scott Kelly, a National Weather Service meteorologist.

Those currents will last at least through today. While typical for August in Florida,the heat index will likely exceed 100 degrees Monday along the Space Coast.

Temperatures are forecast to remain in the low to mid-90s all week.

The forecast for the next couple of days follows:

Monday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, mostly sunny. West wind between 10 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.

Tuesday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, Mostly sunny. West wind between 10 and 15 mph.

The storm name ‘Emily’ is one that many Bermudians still associate with the strike by  Hurricane Emily in 1987 which caused widespread damage across the island.
