Tropical depression KARL is expected to turn to a tropical storm on the evening of September 23 but will not directly impact Bermuda, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).
The NHC reported that KARL would transform into a storm at 8pm on Friday September 23, when it is still to the South-East of Bermuda, but that its projected course will miss the island as it starts to head North-East.
However, it was reported on the NHC website that the storm will later transform into a ‘major hurricane’ as it passes 33.5 nautical miles to the North and 58.5 nautical miles to the East of the island on Saturday September 24 at 8pm.
The maximum wind will be 80 mph, with wind gusts of up to 100 mph.
