The late-season Tropical Storm Rina, which formed Monday night (Nov. 6), continued to make its way through the Atlantic Ocean on Tuesday but was not threatening any land.
As of Tuesday morning, Rina was located 1.416 km. east of Bermuda.
The NOAA’s National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Florida says the trough of low pressure is currently no threat to land, but is expected to become gain power over the next 48 hours.
“Rina is moving toward the north near 19 kmh,” the NHC said. “This general motion accompanied by an increase in forward speed is expected through today.
“A turn toward north-northeast is forecast to occur by Wednesday night.
“Maximum sustained winds are near 65 km/h with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours.”
Maximum sustained winds are expected to be no more than 72 km/h at this time, with gusts of 97 km/h, according to the NHC, though tropical storms are notoriously difficult to predict so fluctuations are likely.
