Hurricane Teddy Updates

[Update 09/18/2020]:

What we know:

Hurricane Teddy is charging ahead as a powerful Category 4 storm, and by Sunday night or Monday morning, it may skirt Bermuda as a Category 2 or 3 hurricane.

The worst of the storm will likely stay offshore the island, but Bermuda may be briefly hit with hurricane conditions overnight Sunday into Monday.

Then, Teddy really picks up speed and moves north, likely becoming a sub-tropical storm as it heads toward Nova Scotia.

Teddy could bring rip currents to the East Coast over the weekend.
