Hurricane Summary POSTED: September 16, 2014 10:57 p.m. Edouard Weakening, Accelerating Northeastward Edouard has now weakened to a Category 1 hurricane. Edouard became a Category 3 hurricane late Tuesday morning EDT. This made it the first major hurricane in the Atlantic this year and the first one since Hurricane Sandy. Edouard is now heading to the northeast some 500 miles east northeast of Bermuda. As Edouard moves into cooler water it will slowly weaken over the next couple of days. There will be no direct impact to land through at least Friday, but it could bring some rain to the Azores this weekend. However, it will send large waves and swells to Bermuda through at least the rest of tonight. surf will even reach the East Coast of the United States on Wednesday, increasing the danger of strong and frequent rip currents from Cape Cod to northeastern Florida. Residents and travelers should seek and follow local advisories and warnings before heading into the water. Elsewhere across the Atlantic, there are no immediate concerns for tropical development, but a tropical wave is expected to move westward off the coast of Africa into the far eastern Atlantic Wednesday. Conditions may be favorable for slow development of this system later this week. By AccuWeather.com senior meteorologist Dave Houk
