Tropical Storm Henri, the eighth named storm of the 2015 Atlantic season, is no longer a threat to Bermuda, according to the Bermuda Weather Service.

As of 12pm, the storm's closest point of approach had passed and the storm is now located about 203 nautical miles east of the Island.

The weather forecast for today predicts light to moderate winds with a passing shower or two, as Tropical Storm Henri “slowly passes to the east of Bermuda this afternoon”.

The Bermuda Weather Service added: “There are no watches or warnings associated with Tropical Storm Henri at this time and none are anticipated.”

According to the US National Hurricane Centre, at 11am AST the centre of Tropical Storm Henri was located near latitude 32.6 North, longitude 60.8 West.

“A faster northeastward motion is predicted on Friday. On the forecast track, the centre of Henri will pass well east of Bermuda later today.

“Maximum sustained winds are near 40mph (65km/h) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours.

The National Hurricane Centre added that tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205km) from the storm's centre.
