Track of Bill

At 5:00 AM AST (0900 UTC) the center of Tropical Storm Bill was located about 190 miles (305 km) northeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland.

Bill is moving toward the east-northeast near 43 mph (69 km/hr). An east-northeast motion with some increase in forward speed is expected during the next day or two.

Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph (110 km/hr) with higher gusts. The system has lost its tropical characteristics, and gradual weakening is forecast during the next couple of days.

Even though Bill is no longer a tropical cyclone, it is expected to produce a large area of storm and gale force winds over the North Atlantic during the next day or two. Currently, tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 315 miles (510 km) from the center. Estimated minimum central pressure is 980 mb (28.94 inches).
