Atlantic Storm to Bypass Eastern US, Aim at Canada

Forecast to bring building surf, rough seas and locally gusty showers to Bermuda
Updated Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013, 7:30 p.m. ET

A storm forecast to develop over the western Atlantic Ocean this weekend is likely to remain weak and stay east of the United States, but will impact Bermuda, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.

With a weaker storm tracking farther east, the overall weather will remain dry for most areas from the Carolinas northward to Maine.

There is a chance of spotty showers from the coastal areas of the Carolinas, to perhaps as far north as the Delmarva Peninsula this weekend. Breezy conditions are likely along the Carolina coast this weekend and during Sunday and Monday farther north over Delmarva. Early morning fog can be a problem away from the coast through Monday.

Canada Storm
The storm is forecast to bring building surf, rough seas and locally gusty showers and thunderstorms to Bermuda this weekend.

It could impact Atlantic Canada from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland Monday into Tuesday with the effects of a moderate nor'easter with rough seas and the chance of windswept rain.

The most significant impact from a U.S. standpoint will be locally rough surf and offshore seas Sunday into Monday. However, because of the farther east and weaker storm track, problems related to this will be minor. Most larger, ocean-worthy vessels will have no issues negotiating the conditions. Small craft should exercise caution when venturing away from coastal waters as the storm begins its northward run offshore.

First Big Wind, Wave Storm of the Season Takes Aim at Northwest

While there is still a slight chance of the storm rapidly strengthening and taking a left turn toward New England, odds favor a zone of high pressure bringing a continuation of sunny days and clear cool nights to much of the mid-Atlantic and New England through the weekend.

It is not out of the question that the storm may attain the next name on the Atlantic list, which is Jerry.

According to Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski, "There is a chance the storm takes on some tropical characteristics before reaching Atlantic Canada waters, but disruptive winds and colder water farther north would limit the intensity and deter rapid strengthening of the system."

With a zone of high pressure hanging around the interior mid-Atlantic and New England, the long nights, light winds and clear skies will favor the formation of early morning fog. Patchy fog will favor, but may not be limited to the interior river valleys. Allow extra travel time as a buffer if you will be heading out during the early morning hours.

This essay is good and can really help you change your mindset when you know the odds are against you. Although i don't wrestle, or do any sports for that matter, i still feel like i can take this essay as a lesson and use it in my life. "Always improve" might be the most simplest and yet conveying quote i've heard. this is how you can succeed and it's amazing that some unknown kid seems to have this figured out and he's only a freshman in college. if for whatever reason wrestling doesn't work out for this kid, he should become a motivational speaker. everyone goes through struggles everyday, whatever they may be, but you can't let them get you down, you have to keep fighting. that's what this essay says to me- keep fighting. there's never any reason to give up because you never know what you could have had. i really wish the best for this kid and hope all of his work pays off. there should really be more kids with this type of view out in the world.

Wasn't there an "expert" who retired several years ago fromThe National Hurricane Center in Colorado who said...in all these years/decades he had worked there and all the predictions made, they still had no idea as to what was going to happen. And what about the mandate for better forecasting.... I could guess and be right sometimes.

As a retired meteorologist, I consider this forecast a bunch of baloney,

I agree. I'm a meteorologist myself and the most reliable models bring it away from the east coast. This story is obviously just for ratings.

The ratings are low. They have to stir up something. Predicting an overactive storm season really showed them huh?

Those climate change freaks sure hope we get hit. This years storm season was the mildest in many many years.

You are right. It was quite inactive. However, if you know the circumstances then you're technically wrong. It's difficult if not nearly impossible to predict dry sand-filled air coming off the coast of Africa. This inhibited storm development. If it was not present we would've had A LOT more storms, especially since there have been a numerous amounts of cyclones coming off the African coast.
