Hurricane update - 22 August

Hurricane Bill is headed north across the western Atlantic, bringing galeforce winds to Bermuda.

The coast of Massachusetts is under tropical storm warning from Woods Hole to Sagamore Beach, including the islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.
A tropical storm warning means that tropical storm conditions are likely within the warning area within the next 24 hours.

The NWS office in Boston is issuing Hurricane Local Statements with advice and localised forecasts. The National Hurricane Center in Miami is issuing advisories every 3 hours, and all in New England are advised to keep abreast of developments. The Canadian Hurricane Center is issuing bulletins as well, since Bill will impact the Canadian Maritimes from the US Border to Newfoundland. The main threat here appears to be rainfall (4 inches); the strongest winds will occur offshore, although hurricane force winds could affect the Wreckhouse area of Newfoundland.
