Tropical Depression Fiona continues towards the island, although it continues to weaken.

According to the Bermuda Weather Service’s 6.00pm update, the system was 470 nautical miles south-southeast of the island and moving west-northwest at 15 knots.

Its closest point of approach within the next 72 hours is expected to be around 210 nautical miles to the island’s southwest at noon on Thursday.

While the system still boasts winds of 30 knots, it is expected to weaken further over the next day, with wind speeds falling to around 25 knots before it passes the island.

Meanwhile, another tropical storm has formed in the Atlantic but according to the Weather Station at this point poses no threat to the island.
