Here’s some good news!

Tropical Storm Edouard formed Sunday night well off the eastern U.S.

  • Location: 435 miles south of Cape Race, Newfoundland
  • Maximum sustained winds: 45 mph
  • Movement: northeast at 37 mph

 

Edouard is moving toward the northeast near 37 mph, and this motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days. There are no hazards affecting land.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph, with higher gusts. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles from the center.

No significant change in strength is forecast before Edouard is forecast to become post-tropical later today.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb.

Edouard became the earliest fifth named storm in the Atlantic, beating the previous record held by Emily, which formed July 12  in 2005. Emily was a Category 5 hurricane.
