The 2020 hurricane season went up a notch yesterday with two tropical storms, Josephine and Kyle, churning through the West Atlantic.

Neither storm was rated a threat to the island by the Bermuda Weather Service, with Kyle headed for the North Atlantic, far north of Bermuda.

Early forecasts showed Josephine on a possible course for the island by next Wednesday.

But the BWS warned this week that reliable predictions days in advance were impossible with tropical weather systems.

At noon today, Josephine was 955 miles south-southeast of Bermuda and was expected to curl north of the Leeward Islands over the weekend before it turned north.

The storm was expected to weaken after taking a battering from wind shear before it headed on a possible course to Bermuda late on Monday.
