Tropical Rainstorm Florence has moved back out over the open waters of the Northwest Atlantic and is now positioned southeast of Nova Scotia. The storm will remain classified as a non tropical storm system as it races eastward at 25-30 mph. The storm system will merge with a southward moving cold front and the whole system will move eastward across the North Atlantic for the next few days. Eventually the storm will intensify and become a very powerful wind and rain storm as it approaches Ireland and the United Kingdom. What once was a powerful hurricane will bring strong, perhaps damaging winds and heavy rainfall to parts of Ireland and Northern Ireland and mostly the northern United Kingdom this weekend mostly during Sunday.
Tropical Depression Joyce has degenerated into a remnant low pressure system over the open waters of the Atlantic around 525 miles south of the Azores.
Elsewhere in the basin, we do not anticipate any additional tropical development for at least the next three to five days.
