Hurricane Summary POSTED: September 16, 2014 4:42 p.m. Major Hurricane Edouard Edouard became a Category 3 hurricane late Tuesday morning EDT. This makes it the first major hurricane in the Atlantic this year and the first one since Hurricane Sandy. Edouard is heading to the north and passing at least 400 miles to the east of Bermuda. It will likely maintain strength as a major hurricane through tonight before moving into cooler water and slowly weakening over the next couple of days to the north and east. 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 Tuesday night. Tuesday will be a particularly dangerous day for swimmers with a high risk for strong rip currents. Rough 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.
