Joaquin is expected to pass about 60 nmi (nautical mile) west to northwest of Bermuda during the next 12-24 hours. From there, Joaquin is forecasted to pick up speed and head east to northeast. Once it hits the mid latitude region, between 30° and 40° latitude, vertical wind shears and lower humidity will slightly weaken Joaquin to an extratropical cyclone over the next 2-5 days. But that may be short lived. As Joaquin moves past this region, it can regain it’s intensity. Visit NOAA for the latest forecast on Joaquin. If the hurricane is in your area, be sure to keep informed on your states Facebook or Twitter sites.
