WSAV Hurricane Central

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) —  Tropical Storm Bill has become extratropical. This is the last advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center for Bill.

After a quiet first two weeks of hurricane season, the tropics have gotten much more active. A tropical depression that was sitting off the coast of North Carolina strengthened into Tropical Storm Bill Monday night. This is the second tropical storm of the 2021 season.

As of 11 pm Tuesday evening, Bill has maximum sustained winds of 50 mph with wind gusts of 65 mph. It is 335 miles east of Halifax, Nova Scotia. The storm is racing to the northeast at 29 mph.

No significant impacts to the United States are expected as Bill heads up to near Newfoundland by Wednesday afternoon or evening. Bill continues to show extratropical cyclone characteristics over colder waters and is not expected to remain a tropical storm longer than the next 24 hours.
