Emily 2011 fizzles out
Strong winds and showers are expected to affect Bermuda today and tomorrow as the tattered remnants of Tropical Depression Emily pass to the Island’s north.
It is now classified as a depression.
A meteorologist for the Bermuda Weather service said last night: “As of around 6pm, it has basically deteriorated into a non-tropical entity.
Despite the weakening of the system, the service predicted possible gale force winds and a risk of lightning this afternoon through this evening, with showers and strong winds persisting until tomorrow.
A small craft warning is in place until this afternoon, while the service has issued a Gale Warning and Thunderstorm Advisory valid from this afternoon until this evening.
