- Update: While Humberto is now Post-Tropical Cyclone, Jerry remains Category-2 Hurricane, with max. sustained winds decreased to near 100 mph (155 km/h). At 8:00 a.m. AST (12:00 p.m. UTC), the center of Hurricane Jerry was located near 18.5N, 59.6W, moving toward the west-northwest near 16 mph (26 km/h). A west-northwest to northwest motion at a decreasing forward speed is expected over the next few days. The center of Jerry will move north of the northern Leeward Islands later today, pass well north of Puerto Rico on Saturday, and be well east-northeast of the southeastern Bahamas on Sunday. A gradual weakening trend is forecast to continue today, but Jerry is expected to remain a hurricane during the next few days. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft has recently reported a minimum central pressure of 989 mb (29.20 inches). (Adv. 30, nhc.noaa.gov)

Atlantic basin gets busy with the trio of tropical systems. Tropical Storm Imelda threatens portions of southeastern Texas with more than a foot of rain this week, possibly leading to dangerous flash floods. Hurricane Humberto is forecast track near Bermuda by later Wednesday and Tropical Depression Ten has formed Tuesday morning in the central Atlantic Ocean.
Hurricane Humberto is forecast track near Bermuda by later Wednesday. A hurricane warning have been issued for Bermuda as strengthening Category 2 Hurricane Humberto approaches, potentially bringing strong winds, battering surf and heavy rain to the island.
National Hurricane Center warned the hurricane will also generate high surf and dangerous rip currents along the Southeast U.S. coast.
On Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. EDT (9:00 p.m. UTC), Humberto was located about 450 miles west of Bermuda, moving to the east-northeast at 12 mph, with max. sustained winds of 105 mph (169 km/h).

Tropical Storm Imelda
Tropical Storm Imelda threatens portions of southeastern Texas with more than a foot of rain this week, possibly leading to dangerous flash floods.
The tropical storm that made landfall near Freeport, Texas on Tuesday afternoon with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph, is forecast to bring enough rainfall to cause significant flooding along the Gulf Coast of Texas.
A flash flood watch has been issued across the entire Houston metro area, impacting 6 million people.
Tropical Depression Ten
Tropical Depression Ten has formed Tuesday morning in the central Atlantic Ocean about halfway between Africa and South America. The system should become Tropical Storm Jerry in a day or so, strengthening to a hurricane by the weekend.
