Hurricane Edouard strengthened into a major hurricane (Category 3 or higher on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale) on Tuesday September 16th, 2014 during the morning hours.
Edouard is the first major hurricane in the Atlantic basin since Hurricane Sandy, which briefly became a Category 3 storm as it crossed eastern Cuba in October 2012 before devastating the U.S. East Coast. (The Category 3 designation was given to Sandy in a post-season reanalysis in February 2013; while Sandy was in existence, it had only been categorized as a Category 2 hurricane.)
Hurricane Michael, which in 2012 moved over an expanse of open water similar to Edouard’s path, is the only other major hurricane in the Atlantic basin in the past three seasons.
Hurricane Edouard is spinning in the central Atlantic Ocean, over 400 miles east of Bermuda.
Edouard, the fifth named storm of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season, will curve northeast then east through the rest of this week. On this track, the system will not pose a threat to Bermuda or the U.S. East Coast.
Eventually, Edouard will meet up with the upper-level westerlies and merge with a cold front over the north Atlantic Ocean late in the week, spelling its demise as a tropical cyclone.
We have the latest forecast path, current information, satellite image, and model forecast tracks below.
So, where exactly is Edouard’s center located now? If you’re plotting the storm along with us, the information depicted in the map above provides the latitude/longitude coordinates, distance away from the nearest land location, maximum sustained winds and central pressure (measured in millibars).
