Large Hurricane Rafael will pass just to the east of Bermuda Tuesday night.
A Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for Bermuda as windswept rain was affecting the islands.
The AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center is concerned that since Rafael is a large system that it will come close enough to Bermuda to unleash potentially flooding rain, strong winds and pounding surf through Tuesday night.
Rafael is currently a Category 1 hurricane and should maintain hurricane status as it passes Bermuda.
The hurricane and its strongest winds will pass just east of Bermuda. Only a westward shift in Rafael's track would put Bermuda at risk of enduring hurricane-force winds.
Residents of Bermuda should closely monitor the progress of Rafael. Even tropical storm-force winds could lead to minor property damage and power outages.
Tropical moisture feeding into Rafael's center continued to lead to drenching rain squalls across the some of islands over the northeastern Caribbean Tuesday.
The fast-moving winds of the jet stream will prevent Rafael from taking a turn toward the United States as it moves farther away from the Caribbean this week. The same winds are also likely to steer Rafael just east of Newfoundland later in the week.
