Strengthening Hurricane Humberto to close in on Bermuda

September 18, 2019 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

Strengthening Hurricane Humberto is expected to track close enough to Bermuda to unleash heavy rain, strong winds and pounding seas during the middle of this week.

As of 5 a.m. EDT Monday, Humberto was moving northeast at 5 mph with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph. The storm is expected to continue to strengthen early this week as it stirs rough surf along the East coast of the United States.

An upper-level disturbance moving off the East coast will steer Humberto to the east on Monday, and the storm will continue on that course through much of this week, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Brett Rathbun.

AccuWeather meteorologists expect an eventual turn to the northeast late in the week.

This path will take Humberto dangerously close to Bermuda around the middle and later part of the week.

“Interests in Bermuda should prepare for a close encounter with a hurricane that could evolve into a Category 3 before approaching nearby waters,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.

“Even if Humberto only delivers a glancing blow to the islands, an uptick in showers, thunderstorms and winds are likely from Wednesday into Thursday,” he added.
