Post-Tropical Cyclone Idalia Discussion Number 29
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL102023
500 PM AST Sat Sep 02 2023
Winds on Bermuda have been gradually decreasing since earlier this
morning, and weather stations on the island are no longer measuring
sustained tropical-storm-force winds (at standard elevation).
Gusts to tropical storm force will likely continue on Bermuda into
tonight while Idalia pulls away from the island, but the Bermuda
Weather Service has elected to discontinue the Tropical Storm
Warning in favor of local warnings. Therefore, this will be the
last NHC advisory on Idalia.
Earlier ASCAT showed that maximum winds remain 50 kt on the
northwestern side of the attached frontal boundary. Little change
in strength is expected during the next few days. The
extratropical cyclone is likely to occlude again in about 3 days
and begin to fill, at which point weakening is expected. The NHC
intensity forecast is between the HCCA and IVCN consensus aids.
Idalia appears to have turned toward the east-northeast, or 075/6
kt. A shortwave trough is expected to move off the coast of New
England on Sunday, causing the cyclone to turn northeastward and
the northward and speed up over the next 2-3 days. Once it
occludes, it is expected to slow down and meander to the southeast
of Nova Scotia on days 4 and 5.

Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service, under AWIPS
header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and online at
1. Swells from Idalia are forecast to cause life-threatening surf
and rip current conditions along portions of the east coast of the
United States through Labor Day weekend.
2. Gusts to tropical storm force are likely to continue on Bermuda
