On topic, you don't see too many tropical storms turn hurricane that far north. Usually it's hurricanes that turn into extra-tropical storms.

That was my question.
Is it typical for a Huricane to reach that far North?

And by the way,
what is sthe damage report in the Bahamas?
We are going on a long weekend cruise (Royal Caribbean) there next weekend.

I suspect this storm will have a large wind field as it transistions from a warm core low(tropical) to a cold core low(extratropical)..The maritimes will have a fit with this one,lets just hope we dont see another "Perfect Storm"...the mix to the soup is there...

I've been watching this one and some of the forecasts I've seen have forecast tropical storm strength winds going into the Arctic Circle! The line is a nice straight one up the coast, but I think once the storm hits a given latitude this time of year the track tends to become linear so this shouldn't be too strange. Glad I'm on the other side of the world from this one right now.

A strike right up the ol' Gulf Stream. That map makes me realize just how far offshore Bermuda really is. Looks like the boats hanging out in St. George are safe.

Max, I know fer sure the girls won't be going out - their threshold is 15 kts.

I would be crazy enough to do it in my barge, if: 1). I didn't take the sails down already, and 2). I have a design presentation on Saturday. For sure though, that 70 kt episode would be a hair-raising experience, even for Giu.
