Hurricane season: First tropical storm to start ‘very active’ hurricane season | World | News

On Monday, locally gusty winds and heavy rain could hit Bermuda, but Mr Kottlowski said damaging winds are not expected.

Forecasters predict the track of the system should see the Northeast US avoid downpours, but another storm arriving from the Midwest will soak the region instead before this stalls in the East next week.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said: “A trough of low pressure located over the Straits of Florida continues to produce disorganized shower activity and gusty winds across the Florida Keys, portions of southeast Florida, and the northwestern Bahamas.

“Gradual development of this system is expected, and it will likely become a tropical or subtropical storm on Saturday when it is located near the northwestern Bahamas.
