Category 4 Hurricane Fiona: 130 mph Winds

Wednesday September 21, 2022

Morning Update

Hurricane Fiona is a Category 4 storm this morning with winds of 130 mph. It is the strongest hurricane in an otherwise quiet season. This strength was forecast and it is going to continue to be a player across the east coast.

The track is moving north of North Caicos Island this morning and tracking to the west of Bermuda by Friday.  It will miss the eastern US, but send rip currents and beach erosion up and down the coast. 

Snapshot

Before sunrise, the center of the storm was located more than 100 miles north of North Caicos Island.  This is a rough estimate as the National Hurricane Center did not post their update at 5 AM.

Hurricane Fiona  Latest Info…

  • Winds are 130 mph
  • Moving to the North at 8 mph 
  • Hurricane Force Winds: Extend 45 miles from the center.
  • Tropical Storm Force Winds: Extend 160 miles from the center

Most ensembles show this curving through the Bahamas then east of the US coast.  I say most, because there are some outliers and we must consider that so far this has not been handled well with computer models… and verifying to the LEFT of the expectations.
