5 AM ADVISORY 8/15/2020

Tropical Storm Kyle is about 280 miles SE of Rhode Island. The storm is expected to continue east into the Atlantic for the next couple of days, and is forecasted to become a post-tropical cyclone by Sunday. Current maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph with tropical-storm-force winds extending outward up to 80 miles from the center.

11 PM ADVISORY 8/14/2020

Kyle is moving rapidly out to sea and still poses no threat to any land areas.

FOX 4 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST DEREK BEASLEY

FIRST ADVISORY 5 PM 8/14/2020

Kyle formed Friday afternoon just off the NJ coast despite strong shear blowing most of the storms north and east of the center. This strong westerly wind component will help to quickly sweep Kyle out into the Atlantic away from land. This storm will NOT be a threat to any land areas as it heads into the North Atlantic by next week.
