Tropical Storm Nadine forms
2012-09-12 10:36:52 | (0 Comments)
Tropical Storm Nadine has formed over the open tropical Atlantic on Tuesday, and continues to grow more organised today.
The Meteorological Service of Jamaica said Tropical Storm Nadine was located near latitude 18.6 degrees North and 46.6 degrees West or about 1605 kilometres east of the Lesser Antilles.
It said the storm is moving toward the west northwest near 28 km/h. A gradual turn toward the northwest and a decrease in forward speed are expected during the next couple of days.
The Met Office said maximum sustained winds are near 75 km/h, with higher gusts.
Strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours and Nadine could become a hurricane by Thursday night. But it is not a threat to Jamaica.
Meanwhile, Leslie has moved out to sea Tuesday afternoon, hours after its stiff winds and heavy rains pummeled Newfoundland, knocking out power to thousands and forcing the cancellation of all flights at the island's main airport.
