Tropical Storm Bill, the second named tropical cyclone of the young 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Center, is racing east away from New Jersey after being chased off the coast by a cold front responsible for severe thunderstorms in the Mid Atlantic last evening.
With Bill racing away from the U.S. East Coast, there are no watches or warnings in effect for it at this time.
In the last advisory from the National Hurricane Center, the storm had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph and a minimum central pressure of 1003 mb or 29.62″. The storm was racing to the north and east at 23 mph. Tropical storm force winds extend 70 miles from the center of the storm.
According to the National Hurricane Center, Bill is expected to continue moving north and east away from the coast through Wednesday with increasing forward speed. While some additional strengthening is possible on Tuesday, the National Hurricane Center says Bill will weaken to a post-tropical low and eventually dissipate on Wednesday.
