Tropical storm a ‘potential threat’ to island

Tropical storm Bonnie is a potential threat to Bermuda according to a Bermuda Weather Service advisory issued at midnight.

The closest point of approach to Bermuda within 72 hours (three days) is forecast to be 189 nautical miles to the north at 8pm on tonight.

The weather system became a tropical storm last Saturday, but weakened to a tropical depression the following day before making landfall in South Carolina. Despite the weakening, the system brought heavy rain and some flooding to the region. Now the system has been upgraded to a tropical storm.

Early forecasts suggest the island will see a mix of sun and clouds today, along with an occasional shower
