Tropical Storms Kyle And Josephine Won't Be A Problem For Us

Eastern Daylight Time on Sunday, August 16, 2020, due to the presence of two systems that that may form into tropical cyclones behind Tropical Storm Josephine.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that Tropical Storm Josephine's maximum sustained winds decreased to around 35 miles per hour, and the system was now a tropical depression. Josephine was located 190 miles (305 kilometers) northeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

And Kyle has lost its tropical features and been ruled a post-tropical storm in the northern Atlantic. Several others across multiple USA states were then killed when the storm made landfall in North Carolina and moved through the East Coast, leading to floods, tornadoes, fires, and widespread power outages.

It stated Tropical Storm Josephine is no longer in the monitored area and no longer deemed a wind threat to the islands.

A peace deal has finally been struck between Israel and UAE but peace takes more than signatures and handshakes. In that context, we welcome the full normalisation of ties between UAE and Israel.

It has a 30 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression in the next five days. The wave near Africa is projected to move northwest toward the Caribbean.

"The storm will likely continue to strengthen but is expected to track north of the Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico over the weekend", CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen says. But just as quickly as both storms ramped up, these tropical storms started to fall apart. Kyle was never going to have an impact on the USA and it will continue moving away before being absorbed by the upper level flow over the coming days.

Kyle was far off the East Coast of the continental US - centered about 545 miles (880 kilometers) southwest of Cape Race, Newfoundland, Canada.

Closer to land, tropical moisture, although not from a defined tropical system, is expected to bring downpours late this week. The ongoing hurricane season has produced double the typical number of storms.
