Tropical storm RINA set to remain at sea

Tuesday 7th November 2017

Tropical depression Nineteen beefed up overnight and became our seventeenth named storm, tropical storm RINA. This is now centred 850 miles east-nor'east of Bermuda and headed north at 7 knots. This is at the weaker end of tropical storm force but looks set to strengthen over the next 24 hours or so before transitioning into an extratropical cyclone. This will remain over the open Atlantic as a fish storm, posing no threat to land but making life miserable for sailors.

Stand easy ashore.
