Andrea declared post-tropical’
Post-tropical cyclone Andrea is not a threat to Bermuda, the island’s weather agency said last night.
The Bermuda Weather Service said that the storm’s closest point of approach to Bermuda was expected to be 57 miles to the south-southeast at 10am this morning.
The weather service added: “However, this system may move closer to Bermuda after this time period depending on its track.”
Andrea’s maximum sustained winds were 30 knots and it was moving east northeast at 7 knots.
A spokesman said that a cold front will move through this morning and winds were expected to veer to the north in the afternoon as a ridge of high pressure slowly builds in from the west.
Showers and cloud are expected to continue in the morning and early afternoon, with sun expected by late afternoon.
A small-craft warning will remain in force tonight and possibly into tomorrow morning.
