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.

This NOAA satellite image taken Sunday, August 07, 2011 at 01:45 PM EDT shows Tropical Depression Emily located about 680 miles west of Bermuda. The depression is moving toward the northeast near 17 mph with maximum sustained winds near 35 mph. Meanwhile, scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are visible over the northeastern corner of the Caribbean Sea due to a tropical wave. Storms affect the southern coastal waters of Puerto Rico. Similar activity is visible over the southwestern corner of the basin, near the coasts of Colombia, Panama, and Costa Rica due to proximity of the monsoon trough that extends from southern Costa Rica to northern Colombia.
