Jerry has been downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone as it continues its slow approach from Bermuda’s west.

At 6pm, the Bermuda Weather Service believed the storm would be within 29 miles, or directly over, the island at 10pm today.

Jerry’s strength had declined to winds of 35mph and gusts to 46mph. It was 47 miles west-southwest of Bermuda, moving east-northeast at 12mph.

The United States National Hurricane Centre said Jerry weakened because of atmospheric shear, and predicted the storm would degenerate into a remnant low-pressure system in four days.

Tropical Storm Karen was labelled a potential threat to Bermuda today as it continues to head north, but the BWS forecasts it will change track and veer west later in the week.

At 6pm, Karen was 650 miles south of Bermuda, heading north at 14mph. It had winds of 40mph and gusts to 52mph.

Its closest point to the island within the next 72 hours is expected to be 370 miles to the south-southeast at 3am on Friday.
