Atlantic Basin - Active Storms
AccuWeather Atlantic Basin Overview
Hurricane Summary POSTED: September 18, 2014 5:56 a.m. Edouard Racing Eastward Over Open Atlantic Hurricane Edouard is racing east-northeast across the north central Atlantic at 30 mph. The hurricane is 1,050 miles west of Fayal Island in the western Azores. Edouard will soon move over cooler water and into an area of increased wind shear during the next 12-24 hours and this will cause the storm to weaken. This weakening will become more pronounced tonight and Friday. There will be no direct impact to land through at least Friday, but it could bring some rain to the Azores this weekend. Large swells from Edouard continues to impact parts of the East Coast of the United States with danger of rip currents from Cape Cod to Cape Hatteras, but these swells should subside later Thursday and Thursday night. Elsewhere across the Atlantic, there are no immediate concerns for tropical development. A tropical wave moving off the coast of Africa will move westward across the far eastern Atlantic. Conditions may be favorable for slow development of this system late this week or during the upcoming weekend.
