TS Peter forecast to near the island on Thursday evening

TS Peter: the latest predictions (Image supplied)

Tropical Storm Peter tonight remained on course to approach Bermuda late in the week.

The Bermuda Weather Service said the storm’s closest point of approach in three days would be 442 miles south-southwest of the island at 6pm on Thursday.

But the storm could come nearer after that time.

The storm was expected to turn north late on Wednesday and move on a north-easterly course for Bermuda on Thursday.

The BWS said the storm’s wind strength was 52mph, with gusts of up to 63mph.

The storm was tonight headed west-northwest at 14mph.

The US National Hurricane Centre said the storm might weaken as it encountered wind shear.

But the NHC warned there could be “slow strengthening” later this week.

The NHC said: “There remains a possibility that Peter does not survive the shear over the next few days.

“However, the storm thus far has shown some resiliency to the hostile environment.”
