UK weather MAP: Atlantic cyclone heading straight for UK – Track Tropical Storm Edouard | Weather | News


Tropical Storm Edouard is moving “quickly” northeastward in the Atlantic Ocean, according to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Maps and spaghetti models show the storm is heading straight for the UK.

However, the churning weather system is still far away from any land.

Right now, Edouard is located about 530 miles south of Cape Race Newfoundland.

There are also no coastal watches or warning in effect.

Tropical Storm Edouard is moving toward the northeast near 36mph and this motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days.

NOAA wrote in its latest advisory: “Due to the rapid motion, it is possible that the system no longer has a closed circulation.

“However, there is not enough evidence of this to justify stopping advisories at this time.”

It added: “Edouard is embedded in strong southwesterly mid-latitude flow, and a fast motion toward the northeast should continue until the cyclone dissipates.

“The new track forecast is little changed from the previous forecast, and it lies near the centre of the tightly clustered model guidance.”
