The National Hurricane Center demonstrated a shift in the disturbance that leads it to continue way farther east.

According to WPTV, the storm is traveling northwest at 7 mph and sustains a maximum wind of 40 mph. While being 30 miles east-northeast of Great Abaco Island and 145 miles east of Grand Bahama Islands.

While Florida is now completely out of the storms “cone of uncertainty”, a tropical storm warning is in effect for Northwestern Bahamas and Andros Island.
