A enlarged view of the five-day forecast track for Tropical Storm Cristobal issued at 11 a.m. EDT Aug. 24 by the National Hurricane Center.
Tropical Storm Cristobal is now Hurricane Cristobal. The National Weather Service announced Monday night that maximum wind speeds had increased to 75 mph.

Cristobal is a Category 1 hurricane.

The hurricane is moving north-northeast at about 2 mph. It is expected to pass to the west of Bermuda on Wednesday.

According to the NHC, Cristobal should continue moving north-northeast overnight and then turn toward the northeast and pick up speed. The forecast track shows the hurricane moving away from the Bahamas on Tuesday and passing to the west and north of Bermuda on Wednesday.

The forecast track keeps the hurricane well offshore the U.S. east coast before it turns east and heads out to sea.

Season Outlook

NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center updated its season Outlook Aug. 7. The updated hurricane season outlook, which included hurricanes Arthur and Bertha, predicts a 70 percent chance of the following ranges: seven to 12 named storms (top winds of 39 mph or higher), including three to six hurricanes (top winds of 74 mph or higher), of which zero to two could become major hurricanes (Category 3, 4, 5; winds of at least 111 mph).

These ranges are below the 30-year seasonal average of 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes. The initial outlook in May predicted eight to 13 named storms, three to six hurricanes and one to two major hurricanes.

Hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30.
