The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported on Thursday that a low-pressure system off Bermuda is set to become a subtropical cyclone by Friday.
“A non-tropical low-pressure system located about 650 miles east-northeast of Bermuda is now moving northward, and recent satellite wind data indicate that the system has gale-force winds,” the NHC explained.
“The low is expected to turn westward and west-southwestward over warmer waters tonight and Friday, and it will likely become a subtropical cyclone near and to the northeast of Bermuda on Friday. After that time, the system is expected to move toward the north and northeast into a more hostile environment by late Sunday into Monday,” the monitoring center added.
It is estimated that the system has a 70 percent probability of becoming a cyclone.
