Hurricane Bill Is Bigger, Badder

The National Hurricane Center is reporting that Hurricane Bill has stepped up his proverbial game, to all of our dismay. The storm is said to have reenergized as it proceeded through the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Forecasters said Bill should begin pushing large swells toward Bermuda and parts of the southeastern U.S. coast by the weekend, but it wasn’t yet clear how close the storm will come to land.

“The wind shear is light and the waters are warm,” Todd Kimberlain, a forecaster at the center, said Tuesday.

“Those are two essential ingredients not just for the formation, but also the maintenance, of hurricanes.”

The storm was maintaining a top wind speed of 135 mph Wednesday and it was moving west-northwest near 18 mph.

It was too early to tell if Bill would veer close to shore over the weekend or swing away from the East Coast of the U.S., but the five-day forecast predicted its center would pass well offshore of the North Carolina-Virginia line Sunday.
