Storm Team 9: Erin Turns Post-Tropical

Posted: Updated:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Erin in the eastern Atlantic Ocean. As of 5 PM Sunday, August 18th, maximum sustained winds are around 35 mph with higher gusts. Coordinates: 20.4 N, 39.8 W; moving W at 8 mph.

The Bermuda high pressure system is anchored over the central Atlantic Ocean. This weather feature is keeping Tropical Depression Erin moving generally on a westward track.

Tropical Storm Erin has encountered faster upper-level winds, dry air and cooler waters.  These factors have done their work on the system. The National Hurricane Center says this is the final advisory for Erin.
